The Cajon Drum is a simple instrument with a complex sound. Some people believe that the Cajon originates from the use of shipping crates as improvised percussion instruments. From these humble beginnings the Cajon is now a hugely popular instrument found in many different types of music.
The Cajon makes different sounds depending on where and how it is struck - everything from a deep bass sound to a sharp snare effect. Whether it is providing the entire rhythm section or acting as part of a wider ensemble the Cajon is a powerful instrument in the hands of both beginners and experts.
For the Cajon players there are no rules. A beginner can easily coax out a good rhythm from the drum but in the hands of an expert the Cajon produces a rich, resonant and complex sound. With a little practice any beginner can begin to master the subtleties of the Cajon!
