The History (and Future) of Live Music – How We Get To Next. Cajón - Wikipedia. Percussionist Leon Mobley playing a modified cajón; traditional cajones have the hole at the back, opposite the tapa Listening example of a Cajón A cajón (Spanish pronunciation: [kaˈxon] ka-HON, "box", "crate" or "drawer") is nominally a box-shaped percussion instrument originally from Peru, played by slapping the front or rear faces (generally thin plywood) with the hands, fingers, or sometimes various implements such as brushes, mallets, or sticks.

Cajón - Wikipedia

Cajones are primarily played in Afro-Peruvian music, as well as contemporary styles of flamenco and jazz among other genres.[1] The term cajón is also applied to other unrelated box drums used in Latin American music such as the cajón de rumba used in Cuban rumba and the cajón de tapeo used in Mexican folk music. Sheets of 0.5 to 0.75 inches (1.3 to 1.9 cm) thick wood are generally used for five sides of the box. A thinner sheet of plywood is nailed on as the sixth side, and acts as the striking surface or head. Hang - Wikipedia. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Hang may refer to:

Timeline by 1701-1800Did Robert Robinson Wander as He Feared? – Church History

In 18th century England, there was little in the way of a social welfare system and this meant that he had to go to work while still very young. Without a father to guide and steady him, Robert fell in with bad companions. One day his gang of rowdies harassed a drunken gypsy. Pouring liquor into her, they demanded she tell their fortunes for free. Pointing her finger at Robert she told him he would live to see his children and grandchildren. Robert Robinson decided to go hear the Methodist preacher George Whitefield. Glamping in Switzerland. Way back in September I started jamming with the Roustabouts.

Glamping in Switzerland

They meet once a month in McGee’s Irish Pub and invite anyone who plays fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, bass, etc. to join in playing Old-Time Music (you know, from Appalachia – in an Irish bar in Switzerland – it works).

Swiss Fiddle Music A forgotten Tradition rediscovered

And as a result of this interest, more and more old manuscripts are being discovered, such as the ‘Altfrentsch’ collection of Appenzell music from the 18th century, the Peter Davoli collection from Samedan (1895) or the music book of Anton Stadelmann of Central Switzerland from 1824 (see below for more details). Despite the fresh breeze blowing and the change in our perception of our traditional music, we in Switzerland are only at the beginning of a development that had been set in motion in other countries as early as the 1970s. ‘Back to the roots’ was the motto of the folk movement back then, when many countries discovered their original folk music and brought it to new life.
