Cajons are box-shaped percussion instruments originally from Peru, played by slapping the front or rear faces with the hands, fingers, or various implements such as brushes, mallets or sticks. They are enjoying increasing popularity in acoustic settings due to their versatility of sounds and portability. (plus they double as a seat!)

The Udu drum originates from Nigeria. First used as a clay pot for carrying water, it was only played as a musical instrument by the women of the village. But today, it is the udu's various acoustical tones and temperament that is what modern musicians have come to love. These ceramic pot drums are so pretty, in fact, that they make wonderful decorations you're not playing them.
