In the past 15 years the cajón, a box drum with Afro-Peruvian roots, has gone from being a semi-obscure traditional instrument to a worldwide phenomenon. Whether you are just starting or already have some skills under your belt, veteran percussionist/educator Homero Chavez will guide you as you explore the potential of this deceptively simple instrument. All levels welcome!
