Peru Negro Dance Company Tour

Spring 2008

By

A carnival of Afro-Peruvian rhythms and dance, Peru Negro is a 20+ dance ensemble that is winding it's way through the U.S until the end of March. Featuring a cross-section of African-descended styles and rhythms, here's a rare chance to see the festejo, lando and Peruvian zapateos performed with joy and artistry.

You can watch a Peru Negro video for a preview of what to expect; their new CD, Zamba Malato is also available.

Most of these venues are not very large, so you may need to purchase tickets locally. There are a few dates available via Ticketmaster, otherwise try checking out tickets at the Peru Negro website.
