What you'll do

We will receive you at my home and tell you the story of the arrival of Africans in Peru and the cultural contribution they have left us. We will talk about how the peoples of African descent were adapting and living with indigenous and European culture giving rise to what we now know as Afro-Peruvian dances and rhythms. We will take a tour of the different dances such as the panalivio, the landó, the tondero, the festejo, the zamacueca and you will learn the most used dance steps in the festejo, one of the most representative dances of the Afro-Peruvian culture that we will all dance together!. But it doesn't end there, then we will continue dancing Zamacueca!, another dance that is characterized by the use of long handkerchiefs that we will have ready for you. And we could not miss the LIVE Afro-Peruvian Music that will accompany us in all the dances that we will learn and we will also have Afro-Peruvian instruments such as the peruvian cajon, the little box (Cajita) and the jaw that you can play with our musicians friends who will accompany us and teach you !. And as if that weren't enough, we want to show you our district: Pueblo Libre, in a short walk where you can appreciate ancient taverns, parishes, the main square, the anthropology museum and restaurants full of history and rich Peruvian food! You will meet, live and enjoy a magical and festive Afro-Peruvian experience!
