Flamenco festival 2022 in Torrox

festival flamenco torrox 2022 cajonea

Torrox organises an international flamenco cajon festival every year in mid-November.

The Torrox Cajon Flamenco Festival will take place from 12 to 19 November 2022

There will be many musical events in Torrox pueblo. The programme is detailed below.

NB: On 16 November, International Flamenco Day, there will be a big cajoneada in Malaga, at the Edgar Neville Auditorium.

A few words about the origins of the cajón flamenco

This type of flamenco was created by Paco de Lucía in the 1970s. In 1977, he returned from a tour in Peru and brought back a cajon, after having seen a percussionist ‘tocar un cajon’. He thought that this instrument would be ideal for flamenco. He was not mistaken!

This instrument is of Afro-Peruvian origin. It was the black slaves in Peru who created this musical instrument from wooden boxes. These wooden boxes were used to transport fruit and fish.

This instrument, the cajon, is now used in many musical styles throughout the world.

For the record, this is the only international cajon flamenco festival in the world today.

I would like to take this opportunity to give a nod to my friend Antonio Bueno, creator of the flamenco cajon “made in Torrox”. He is also the co-organiser of this festival.
