Percussion Box

Cajones are primarily played in Afro-Peruvian music, as well as contemporary styles of flamenco and jazz among other genres. This instrument is nominally a box-shaped percussion box instrument originally from Peru, played by slapping the front or rear faces (generally thin plywood) with the hands, fingers, or sometimes various implements such as brushes, mallets, or sticks. The term cajón is also applied to other unrelated box drums used in Latin American music such as the cajón de rumba used in Cuban rumba and the cajón de tapeo used in Mexican folk music. Easy to play with if you know your beat because you will use you two hands in making music with this music instruments.
