Here’s a basic first groove to getting started with the rumba on cajon!

The rumba has so many different patterns, grooves and feels, it has a vast range of different ways to play it. It is used most often in Latin, Cuban, African, Arabic and Flamenco (rumba catalana) styles, but the rumba pattern is al sooften used in reggeaton, dance (house etc) and popular music as well. Learning to play the rumba is important for anyone who plays cajon, it’s like learning to play alternative patterns to spice up popular music.
I am looking forward to being in the studio this week and filming rumba lesson 2, sign up to our newsletter tand be the first to know when it’s out!
