Peruvian drummer Lalo Izquierdo gives a demonstration of cajon drumming. African in origin, the cajon, or 'wooden drum' is used extensively in Peruvian music. The player sits astride the drum and plays by tapping the front panel with the hands. A surprising range of tones can be obtained. Lalo Izquierdo outlines the four main playing techniques. These are demonstrated by himself and members of his ensemble.
Research the types of music where the cajon instrument is used. Students should then research the history, geography, context and development of the music and present their findings in a visual display.
