Interview with Heidi on the new Podcast series for PlayCajon

Very honoured to have been the first Cajon player to be interviewed on the ‘PlayCajon’ podcast series.

It was the first time I actually spoke to Paul Jennings who is a fantastic cajon player and pioneer, and we are now planning to make a video together in Jan 2016 at the NAMM show in California… EXCITING!

Life is great when you share it with people, especially if you share the same passion!

One love my peeps!

Hahaha perhaps I should consider adding a model like this to my range!

What do you think?

Cajon Solo – Daddi Bahmani

Here we have the incredible Daddi Bahmani playing a solo on the Cajon in the style of Electro/House music.

Daddi and I met at the Musikmesse Festival in 2013 and had a jam together – what a guy! A fantastic musician!
We’re working on recording a video together on my channel in the future 🙂

What other styles of music have you heard on the Cajon?

Cajon Duet video – Heidi Joubert & Guillermo Garcia

Heidi went to give some cajon workshops in Extremadura in Spain summer 2015 along with great cajon masters like Guillermo Garcia.

Here they have fun in a vid after a long day’s workshops, playing a cajon duet (totally spontaneous and improvised)

New London Cajon Classes

Meet some of my lovely cajon students! They totally rock! It’s always a great pleasure to teach them, and after class I am normally quite high due to the energy we share in class. Thank you peeps, our classes is one of the highlights of my week.

We had a tiny studio last night and fit 12 players into it, it was hilarious, loud, fun and very very warm! Next week we’re in the big dance studio, yay!!

Long live beats, boxes and beautiful people! Life without it would totally suck.

Thanks to Jane Branagan for the photo

London Drum Show 2015

Had so much fun at the London drum show this weekend, played so much, learnt so much and met so many amazing drummers and important people in the drum world, it’s all bit much to take in!

Best of all, I went as a ROLAND GUEST to the show. Thanks to the Roland team for being so damn cool!

Yep, there’s something BIG cooking!

 

I hope to be having our own Cruz Cajon stall at the show in 2016 as well as workshops on cajon!

Cajon & Hang video – Hangbox project

Heidi’s new Cajon and Hang video is up, Featuring Heidi Joubert & Giovanni Spadoni.

We only had about 1 hour before the sun went down to film and we didn’t meet up to play since our last filming of the first cajon & hang video in 2012, so this was a pure, spontaneous, improvised jam session!

This is the first take and we think it came out pretty well. We are looking forward to recording our first album soon, check out details on this and more on my website.

This project is now officially named as the Hangbox project, what do you guys think? 🙂

We filmed in the Epping Forrest in London during the bloom of the blue bells (see the blue/purple flowers in the backdrop of the video).

These blue bells only bloom for about 1 month and we caught them just a few days before they dilapidated, it’s so special to have them in the picture. I hope you all enjoy the video and the music.
