The cajón is a box-shaped percussion instrument originally from Peru, primarily played in Afro-Peruvian music, as well as contemporary music styles and genres.
Three different models were used in the recording. Each one a distinct sonority. They are:
- Cajon Pithy (made in Brazil).
- Cajon Tierrapiano (made in Peru).
- Cletto Cajon (made in Brazil).
The Cajon library was recorded at the 3ml studio in BH, Brazil, by the great drummer Helton Lima, using a very dry room with 4 microphones.
