Hear the Sounds of Peruvian Music

The BBC World Service will broadcast a radio program entitled "Music Review: Travelling Instruments" by Juan Carlos Jaramillo featuring the coastal music of Peru on Tuesday, 18 November. For those who can tune in to the BBC, the program will appear at the following EST: 10:30 AM, 5:30 PM, 9:30 PM on November 18. You can check it out online by using Media Player between November 18 and 25.

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.
