Once again a ground breaking album, the first Afro Peruvian music heard outside of Brazil and the album to introduce Susana Baca to the world.
This is secret music - a collection of beautiful songs and infectious grooves that’s been hidden for years in the coastal towns and barrios of Peru. It’s not the guys with flutes and drums in woolly hats - it’s music of the black Peruvian communities. Black Peruvians? Yes, Peru was involved in the slave trade too - and this wonderful,funky music is part of that legacy.
