The cajón is an instrument widely used in flamenco. It comes from South America, but has African origins: created by slaves taken to Latin America, the cajón took root in Peru, where it is considered a Cultural Heritage of the Nation. Paco de Lucia introduced this instrument to flamenco, becoming part of its modern sound.
The original traditional construction of the cajón is simple, being just a rectangular box. Thanks to the influence of flamenco, bass drums, such as those of the snare drums, were included, which give it another timbre and resonance, and a greater variety of sounds.
Since 1990, José "Pepote" Hernández Díaz has been making cajóns and developing them in search of the best sound and quality. It all started when, still 13 years old, he went to a concert by Paco de Lucia and fell in love with the box from which the rhythms come, to the point of wanting to make his own. Today, it is one of the references in the manufacture of cajóns and one of the reference producers worldwide.
The orange-topped Pepote Jaleo cajón is a great rhythm box to be played with emotion and heart by your hands.
