Hear the Sounds of Peruvian Music
The broadcast will include several musical examples, a demonstration of Marinera de Lima and 'Son de los Diablos' performed by master musician Pepe Villalobos Cavero and an interview with Victoria Santa Cruz, main protagonist of the Afro-Peruvian musical movement.
The program tapped several researchers on aspects of musical traditions associated with Peru's black population, including the Peruvian all wooden box drum, or 'cajón': Guillermo Durand, Researcher at Peru's National Museum; Chalena Vasquez, Direcor of the Centre of Music and Dance at the Catholic University, Lima; and David Mortara, Research Fellow of the Centre for Latin American Cultural Studies, King's College London.
