  • Cajon Flamenco

    The origin of cajón flamenco is Peruvian; has been used for flamenco only in 1972 when the genius of flamenco, Paco de Lucia, heard this instrument for the first time at a party organized by the Spanish ambassador in Peru. At that moment knew that this sound would be perfect for his flamenco works, so he asked to his percussionist Ruben Dantas to insert it in his performances. Since then in Spain we have involved the cajón flamenco at other levels by introducing different woods and strings to refine the bass sounds in the drawer, although each manufacture has its own way of manufacturing the instrument. The most used wood for cajónes flamencos is phenolic birch plywood board. According to many flamenco artists, the drawer sound resembles the feet of a dancer because there is the sound of the floor (bass sound) and that of the heel (high-pitched sound).
