The Kahon goes mainstream

The first time I saw the wooden box in action was in a Cynthia Alexander gig in the 70’s Bistro along Anonas in Quezon City. It wasn’t grand. To be honest I thought it was some sort of a monitor for the performers with the speakers positioned at the back. I never thought that was the set-up that would handle the percussions!

Now branded as K-Hon, the wooden box is selling like hotcakes at music stores for around P3,500. Even the international music scene is taking notice! Hmmm. Not a bad alternative to a drum set costing almost ten times as much. With the way things are going I see the Yamaha Music School offering summer kahon lessons.
