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
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.
