Please note, this event was cancelled due to inclement weather.

The Afro-Peruvian Ensemble is an unforgettable live experience that celebrates a unique heritage that will get you up on your feet! This all-star ensemble brings you the joyful sounds of the Peruvian coast with a contemporary treatment that is rooted in rich tradition. The ensemble’s repertoire includes uplifting festejos and zamacuecas, dazzling Peruvian waltzes and hypnotic landos, as well as the contrapunto de Cajones (box drum counterpoint) and contrapunto de Zapateo (tap dancing competition)—classics of Afro-Peruvian folklore rarely seen in the US.

Doors open at 7:30pm. No reservations required. Capacity is currently capped at 150 attendees per performance; seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Free parking is available.

This program was part of the 2021 Summer Amphitheater Series. Learn more about the free series here.
