DE CAJON by CAITRO SOTO (download LP) < link

Pedro Carlos Soto de la Colina, popularly known as Caitro Soto (born in San Luis, Cañete Province, Peru, October 23, 1934 – Lima, July 19, 2004) was an Afro-Peruvian musician and composer. He was known for his version of the Peruvian folk song, “Toro Mata” and as part of the Afro-Peruvian artist’s collective Peru Negro.

Flamenco fans may have seen legendary guitarist Paco de Lucia with a cajon player in his ensemble. When Paco de Lucia visited Peru nearly 20 years ago, the Spanish ambassador threw a party. Among those present was Caitro Soto, one of Peru’s top percussionists. Soto gave de Lucia a cajon as a present. He also gave the guitarist basic tips on the instrument, which has now become a standard part de Lucia’s flamenco ensemble. Ironically, today, many people think that the instrument is Spanish. It is 100% Peruvian.
