The country of Peru has slowly come to recognize a treasure in its midst. The instrument is a wooden box or drawer that drummers straddle while tapping with an open palm or fingertips. There are numerous theories about the origin of the cajon. Enslaved Africans in Peru are believed to have used old shipping crates and turned them into drums because there was a ban on African music, Spaniards believing it might help slaves organize uprisings.

Another theory holds that the cajon is actually similar to boxlike instruments that were traditionally used in Angola. The instrument was, for most of its history, solely relegated to the realms of Afro-Peruvian music. But today, with its national recognition, Peru promotes use and knowledge about the cajon in its schools and museums and through countrywide programs.

The upcoming ceremony will also pay homage to recently deceased actor and musician Rafael Santa Cruz, as well as to singer Jose Escajadillo, who has written over waltzes.

Santa Cruz died suddenly of a heart attack at age 53, just this past August. In , he organized the gathering of 1, cajon players during the International Peruvian Cajon Festival.

Rafael Santa Cruz

His presence is reassuring, impressive, fascinating. One can feel his warmth from the first handshake and his friendliness from the first embrace. His line of thought follows the flow of an oft-repeated lecture, dimples appearing and arms swinging at the pace of his words, for hours and hours. Seldom had we come out so astonished from an interview. Rafael knows his subject — he wrote a book on it — and can sidetrack for hours without ever losing the attention of his audience and always with sheer generosity.
