HISTORY

The Peruvian Cajon created by black slaves in Peru during the Spanish colonization because of the prohibition of playing their drums by the Catholic Religion since they were considered as heathen instruments.
The Peruvian Viceroyalty also banned them to avoid the communication between black people (talking drums)
Every drum found was burnt. Percussion was the divine factor of African music so the slaves tried to find an instruments to express themselves. The black slaves saw a percussion instrument in the boxes used to carry goods and they played them in their sacred ceremonies  and different artistic demonstrations.
