The main use I am familiar with for the CAJÖN ( Pronounced Kah-Hawn , a Spanish word ) is in Flamenco which I have danced most of my life, in Spain, USA and Canada! Dancers can perform a gypsy dance called a "Bulería" exclusively to the rhythmic beat of a Cajón. It is basically as hollow wood box but very carefully assembled only by expert makers. An Alberta maker was selling beautifully crafted Cajones he was making himself last couple of years at the South Country Fair. I suspect that playing a Cajón relates to the way one plays some smaller African drums: It is hit with the palm and fingers. In Flamenco dance shows, often there is a Cajón player alongside the guitarist as they complement each other beautifully, as long as one does not overwhelm the other! Check out Anastassia's show March 30 in Calgary- there may be a Cajón alongside 2 guitarristas, a singer and dancers!-
