The cajón, from Peru to Andalusia
The cajón is a percussion instrument that has been
recently introduced into flamenco music. Its origins are Peruvian, Afro-Peruvian to be precise, as
they were invented by African slaves who were transferred to the viceroyalty of Peru, who used the
boxes that they used to carry merchandise as musical
The cajón only made its appearance in flamenco music in the seventies, when it was introduced by Paco de
Lucía. Since then, the Peruvian cajón has been
progressively adapting to the needs of flamenco, in
terms of both sound and rhythm, as it requires more
high-pitch sounds than were produced by the original
Over a short period, the cajón has become firmly
established in flamenco. It contributes to creating
the rhythm that each flamenco palo (form) possesses.
The way in which it works is very simple: by and
large, it is a wooden box with one of the side boards
missing, in its oldest and most basic version, or
which has a hole in one of its sides.
