Afro-Peruvians are a little-known but fascinatng part of the African diaspora. This documentary looks at their culture through performance, interviews, and a narration, benefiting especially from participation by the multi-talented Lalo Izquierdo. The documentary is evergreen, good for Africana Studies, Ethnic Studies, Latino Studies, Ethnomusicology, Anthropology, and Music & Dance.
