A special workshop on the djembe cajon run by percussionist and cajon maker Tawanda Gadzikwa. Born in Zimbabwe, Tawanda has lived and traveled extensively across West Africa performing and making djembes. He fell in love with Peruvian music and the cajon after studying with Ricardo Monzon at Berklee College of Music.
This workshop is an introduction to the djembe cajon and provides a brief history into the evolution of percussion instruments and particularly the cajon. As a recognized community music artist across Australia, Tawanda’s workshops not only focus on musicality and technique but also on the joy of the collective sound.
