Afro-Peruvian music hits big

SFGate PERUVIAN SOUL: "[Ronny] Campos say the give-and-take between the dancers and percussionists is the essence of Afro-Peruvian music. 'The symbiotic relationship between dancers and percussionists is clear when you see a performance. There is melody, but the dancers and percussionists lead each other. The dancers set the tempo and the percussion follows." This article picks up a San Francisco concert of Peru Negro and then goes the historical and cultural background that makes Afro-Peruvian music so distinctive. A tip of the hat to Sebastian Arana for pointing me towards this article.
