Cajons are box shaped drums that originate from Africans in South America.
Today, it is the national instrument of Peru and is popular in folkloric music traditions from Cuba to southern Spain, as well as contemporary music.
This workshop is presented by Tawanda, who has travelled and lived extensively across Africa and the Americas, and is a renowned cajon maker.
The workshop goes through the evolution and journey the instrument has taken across the globe and celebrates the different ways it is played from region to region and the shared meaning it has for those who play it.
Recommended session length: 30-75 minutes, depending on the age group.
