Michael's box

060811_ end-of-week festival #78

Apparently the 'box' my friend Michael is thumping in the picture above is a real instrument... called a 'cajón'. It is, according to Wikipedia, a 'box-shaped percussion instrument originally from Peru, played by slapping the front face (generally thin plywood) with the hands'.

You learn something everyday.

I've been slapping my front face for hours now - it sounds terrible, and my cheeks hurt! ;-)
