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:

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!

I can’t reveal too much about this beauty but it’s freaking awesome, I’ve been spending quite a lot of quality time with her over the past few weeks in studio, filming and playing it….
I’m in love!

All I can say is that it’s something you’ve NEVER seen before!!!

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?

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.

Heidi drum show

Cajonbox/Heidi at the Musikmesse, Frankfurt

This Year Heidi visited the Musikmesse for the first time and she has some amazing stories to tell! She met and played with some of the best players in the world such as Hakim Ludin, Jorge Palomo and Claudio Spieler. She also tried all the cajon brands on the market and met with all the big manufacturers and owners of companies of all kind of percussions etc.
Next year we will be visiting the Musikmesse to display our amazing Cruz Cajon at the Cruz Cajon booth. We will be taking our entire team, as well as my band (Fernando’s Kitchen) and some of my cajon school students to join in the fun and do demonstrations on our amazing range. We are seriously looking forward to all the doors these opportunities will open for us all over the world.
