Afro-Peruvian Ensemble (2021)
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.
