So fun!

This was a really fun experience! Our group wasn't particularly musically talented but Maluki taught us how to sound amazing using the Cajon. We had so much fun that I nearly forgot that we still had salsa lessons coming. Highly recommend.

This was such a unique and fun experience! Our group had an absolute blast meeting Maluki and learning how to play Cajon. It is a MUST book while you're here in Lima.

Must do for the vibes

Maluki is a good time and very passionate about music which makes this a fun experience. He throws in some interesting cultural details and overall this event helps you understand the origins of music and some method of dancing. I did it twice! Big tip: if you ask, he may even stay awhile after to allow the dancing to continue!
