On March 29 (Tuesday) from 11:20 am to 12:45 pm (in Monroe Hall) under the auspices of the Honors College, The First Afro-Peruvian Music Workshop will take place!

Afro-Peruvian music dates back to colonial times, and later in the 19th century it reached its peak, expressing its uniqueness in typical dances such as the Marinera, festejo, landó, tondero, zamacueca, and contrapunto de zapateo.

Araceli Poma, “Huevito” Lobatón, and Yuri Juarez offer us the best of the Afro-Peruvian heritage through a workshop with songs and dances alluding to the great black culture of Peru.
