Music instruments Sergio plays...
【Charango】 The charango is a small guitar-like instrument and an icon of Andean music of South America. The instrument is thought to have originated some three hundred years ago in the "silver city" Potosi, in what is now Bolivia. It is an indigenous/colonial hybrid instrument dating back to times of early Spanish colonialism that still has a strong presence in contemporary South America. It is still a favorite dance instrument, which is played both solo and in ensembles.
【Cajon】 The word Cajon literally means box (Caja) or drawer (Cajon) in Spanish so it is called "box", "crate" or "drawer". It is a box-shaped percussion instrument and originally from Peru. The instrument is played by slapping the front or rear faces with the hands, fingers, or sometimes implements such as brushes, mallets, or sticks. Cajones are primarily played in Afro-Peruvian music, but has made its way into flamenco as well. The instrument has an earthy tone that provides a solid accompaniment for guitarists and singers.
