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!
