Cajón Ensemble

$202 ($192 members) · 80 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks

The cajón is making rounds through flamenco, rock, and all over Latin American. It’s a wooden box percussion instrument with a wide bass sound like a djembe and a slap as ripe as a conga. The ensemble also includes bongos, congas, cowbell, clave, cajita (little box worn around the neck) and the donkey jaw. With these instruments learn basic techniques and fundamental rhythms of Afro-Peruvian and flamenco music.


No experience necessary. This class welcomes both beginners and more advanced players.
