Heidi to be international demo artist and face for Rolands new Hybrid Cajon range, Elcajon.

I have had the honour to be asked to be the face and international artist for the worlds first hybrid cajon range by Roland. Roland launched their new range with the Elcajon EC10 which is an acoustic cajon with built in triggers to allow for electronic layered sounds on the cajon. The EC10 is launched in Jan 2016 at the NAMM music show in California where Heidi will be presenting it onstage.

 

Check out the promo video here, which was directed and written by Heidi herself:

 

Heidi’s Demo EC10 by Roland wins Best show award @ Namm 2016

My launch demo of the EC10 cajon by Roland at NAMM 2016 was so successful that it won the NAMM award for best show 2016!

What an honour to be part of the Roland family and to be the first to demo and introduce the world to the first worldwide Electronic cajon!

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!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!
