This hour-long documentary explores a rich and colorful tradition: Afro-Peruvian
music and dance. These performance arts originated in the days of slavery, created by a community resourceful in the face of adversity…a community that
has made important but usually unrecognized contributions, especially to the world of music. Take, for example, the cajón – a percussion instrument wildly
popular throughout Peru that has become thoroughly integrated into modern flamenco, and is also used in Latin jazz. In English and Spanish with English subtitles.
