Description : While the site was being updated I started to learn to play the cajon drum. Here is an explanation of this groovy box drum.
The cajn is the most widely used Afro-Peruvian musical instrument since the late 18th century.
Slaves of west and central African origin in the Americas, specifically Peru, are considered to be the source of the cajn drum; though the instrument is common in musical performance throughout the Americas.
The cajn was most likely developed in coastal Peru during the early 19th century or before,[1] where it is associated with several Afro-Peruvian genres. The instrument reached a peak in popularity by 1850, and by the end of the 19th century cajn players were experimenting with the design of the instrument by bending some of the planks in the cajn's body to alter the instrument's patterns of sound vibration.

    I really like this series of drum loops. Thanks for making such a unique instrument available to us. Here's how I used loops 2, 3 and 5 on a couple of mixes of an African blues track....

    Hi Slap Johnson. I just love practically all of your loops. I especially like the sax, so I decided to build around it and make a song with it. It turned out beautiful to me and I would like you to hear your fabulous tunes in my music. If you would like to hear it you can get in touch with me on this page, or use my e-mail so I can send you a copy of the mp3. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. ()
