The word “cajon” (ka-HONE) comes from the Spanish work for “box”-caja. (KA-ha) It is used in Spanish and Latin music. The cajon is becoming more popular in the U.S.A. The variety of different sounds that can be produced with this drum that you sit on explains the interest and growing popularity of it. “First Lessons Cajon” tells about the drum and how to play it. A CD of the examples is helpful in hearing what sounds the cajon is capable of producing. If you have a cajon and don’t know what to do with it, this is the book for you!
