Miami Herald Susana Baca: Diplomatic diva: "fro-Peruvian diva Susana Baca sings from deep inside the unique culture she has exposed to the world. As a girl growing up in a village on the northwestern coast of Peru, Susana swayed to the syncopated music of local residents descended from a 500-year mix of African slaves, Spanish colonials and Andean natives. She learned the songs and dances that surrounded her, but soon noticed that they were not reflected in the larger popular culture. Radio and television programmers seemed determined to ignore the music of the black Peruvians."
