Dionisio Quilla marks the beat of Peru's musical traditions with an elegant cajón drum. Quilla crafts the cajón from higuerilla wood featuring two cotton and copper strings that regulate the drum's reverberation. Known as bordoneras, the strings are inside the frontal panel. Literally meaning "box," the cajón is hollow and features a hole on one side. The cajón is now recognized as one of Peru's cultural patrimonies.
