Legend has it that the Cajón was originated from box drums, made of wooden crates by African slaves in South America and Cuba.
Thanks to the genius of Paco de Lucia and his collaboration with Peruvian percussionist Caitro Soto, the Cajón has burst many Flamenco flames in the 70s, and today it is globally famous in many musical settings.
Introducing Kandū Cajóns – tuned to the rhythm of the world.
Kandu began its groove about five years ago, with their first Cajón made especially for a good friend, the former drummer on the Riverdance world tour.
Since then, Kandu has quickly grown from a backroom idea into a world-known Cajón brand.
Kandu developed four lines of instruments which were all well-received. They became very popular in specialty music shops, and found their way into the beating hands of many international musicians.
Today, the Kandu Cajóns are played by leading percussionists all across the world.
