Jam with unique cajon/perc busker in Copenhagen

Meet Victor and his unique cajon percussion Kit. This guy is mad as a hatter and extremely creative in his music and his own customised kit. His show is great and he plays many different percussions solo, yet it seems like there is a whole band playing!

I met himon our tour in Denmark and I had the honour of filming and interviewing him and jamming with him one evening, what a creative artist and a genuinely nice guy!

I am editing the footage and will post up a video of him playing live plus an interview soon. He is really inspiring to watch and has definitely opened my eyes to adding even more to my cajon kit!

Heidi’s band tours in Copenhagen, Denmark

I had the best time ever on our recent tour in Copenhagen. We (Fernando’s Kitchen) spent 11 days performing in Copenhagen in venues, on the street and spontaneously we even got to perform in the famous freetown of Copenhagen called Chsitiania – an unforgettable moment in all our lives!

The reaction of the public was very touching, everyone was super nice and genuinely enjoyed our music!

 

We also met  some great musicians and jammed with the most creative players in Denmark!

The cajon is also picking up popularity in Denmark and I had noticed that it was widely used for street performing by quite a few

musicians.

We’re making a video of the trip and working on the gig photos, but here’s a few pics of our busking to give you an idea..

Heidi trains the faculty of Copenhagen music conservatory on cajon

So excited!!! I have been requested to train and teach the faculty of the music conservatory in coppenhagen and Edegal music school how to play cajon and how to teach their students on the cajon. I will also be writing out a syllabus for their beginners course on the cajon by using my very own, personalised course that I created and use for my own cajon school and lessons. The 2 workshops lasted 3 hours each and took place on Wednesday the 12 June, one in Edgegal and one in Coppenhagen, Denmark.

 

It appears that the cajon will now become one of the instruments taught in most music departments of schools all over the world, and this is not surprising considering that it is possibly one of the most instantly rewarding instruments to play, and so much fun. One doesn’t need to train for years, in fact within as little as 3 min you can already be grooving away on your first rhythm! It’s also a great instrument for building relationships, therapy, boosting confidence and musicality to both adults and children alike. Team building is also another effect of a group cajon class and of course, people with learning disabilities can easily take part in music through this versatile instrument! there is great big things coming up for the cajon in our world and I am so happy to be a part of it!

Do you study at school or uni or in a percussion group/school? Why not suggest to have Heidi Joubert over for a workshop on the cajon and spread the word of this great box drum!
