The cajón became flamenco
That’s right, it became, arrived in Spain and began to be part of Flamenco in 1977 thanks to the great Paco de Lucía.
It was during a performance at the Spanish Embassy in Lima when the guitarist was impressed after seeing the singer Chabuca Granda perform with the cajón.
When Paco de Lucía discovered this sound, he had no doubt that it would be a perfect percussion accompaniment for Flamenco, so he decided to export some to Spain. He was not wrong, as nowadays this is how all Flamenco lovers conceive it.
Its origins go back to Peru, it was the Peruvian slaves who began to use this instrument as a protest. Previously, the colonizers forbade them to use their drums, arguing that they were demonic objects.
During these beginnings, different ignorant and insensitive people tried to eliminate this instrument. But they did not succeed.
Thanks to the insistence of the Peruvian slaves and the initiative of Paco de Lucía, Flamenco can be accompanied by this unique, almost magical sound.
