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!

OMG!!!!

I’m going to LA in two weeks with this sexy baby for the NAMM SHOW with Roland!
BOOOOOOOOOM!
I cannot contain my excitement! Just got my plane tickets!

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!!!

Heeeehaw, America here I come!

 

So….Who’s going to the NAMM, and who’s cooking me a true Californian dinner while i’m there?!!!!!!!

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 & 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.
