History of Cajon

The origin of cajon traces back to the shipping ports of Peru, Cuba and other Caribbean nations which were known to be Spanish colonies. There are no definitive sources that substantiate the exact first-ever invention of cajon. Researchers generally point to its relation with Central and West Africa as the African slaves repurposed cod crates, boxes of harvested fruits, candle crates by flipping them over and playing them as drums. The similar activities were also seen in tea plantations of Peru where the African workers used tea chests or boxes as drums. These sporadically collective effort to look out for replacements of their own musical drums that they had left behind in their homeland dated back to 18th century while there was strict colonial restriction on playing musical instruments or owning one across the region. It is also thought to be an expression of subversion by the slaves against the colonial oppression. Cajon is a Spanish word for ‘box’ or ‘drawer’. Later in 20th century, cajon was introduced on international platform by the hands of Flamenco guitar maestro Paco de Lucia. It has gained worldwide popularity afterwards and become an integral part of the arsenal of Spanish music. The growing fondness for the instrument has enabled manufacturers to mass produce and supply across the globe.

Cajon has become an emblem for Afro-Peruvian music and their rich cultures. Gappu Cajon encourages the passion for drum and creating rhythms from its variants through experiments and modifications with the rich resonance of cajon.
