Musical Cajóns

Meaning “box,” “crate,” or “drawer” in Spanish, cajóns are becoming ever more popular in today’s music. Developed in the early 19th century, the cajón was used mostly by slaves to get around the ban of musical instruments in different colonies; because the player sat on the instrument, they could easily be disguised as seats or stools! Famed guitarist Paco De Lucia is credited as introducing the cajón to flamenco music in the 1970’s, which then spread from there to other forms of contemporary music. Today one can hear the cajón in many applications, from coffee houses to an unplugged set during an arena rock show.

Why is this post on the "Images" forum? Seems like a "spammy" kind of post...since the links take you to a commercial website.
