Cajón afro-peruano

Osvaldo Hernandez Napoles
MABO - Lycée Maria-Boodschap - Rue de la Braie 22, 1000 Bruxelles

The course

During this group course, Osvaldo will cover the different techniques of the Afro-Peruvian cajon as well as the rhythms that are more frequently used in contemporary music styles such as rock, funk and pop music.

The cajon

“His majesty El Cajon”, as called by the Peruvian poet Nicomedes Santa Cruz, originates from the 14th century. It is particularly known as an instrument created by the black population of Peru. The Cajon was a substitute for the African drums, whose use was forbidden after deportation of the slaves. It is most likely that the first cajons were simple wooden crates used for the transportation of fruit or fish. The cajon kept on evolving gradually and eventually took his final form during the fifties.

Osvaldo Hernandez Napoles

Osvaldo Hernandez Napoles, was born in Ixmiquilpan in the state of Hidalgo in Mexico.

As from the age of 19, he has been travelling and researching traditional percussion styles from America’s indigenous people, descendents of African slaves and European colonists. His mix and match of all different kind of styles and cultures made him into a highly versatile percussionist. This mixture of styles can also be seen in the different projects in which he participates such as “Deep Forest”, “Ialma”, “Deep Forest”, “Carlos Diaz”, “Arax” and “Karim Baggili”.
