Armchair Adventures - Episode 10

The Afro-Peruvian groove of Susana Baca

This week in Armchair Adventures we are going on a musical journey to Peru.

I’d encourage you to take five minutes out of your day and be transported to Latin America through the wonderful, soulful Afro-Peruvian groove of Susana Baca.

The Afro-Latin diaspora in Peru, descended from African slaves brought to the country between 1521 and 1854, makes up a tiny proportion of the population, yet it’s had a big influence on the country’s food and music.

So put the kettle on, press play, close your eyes, and feel the vibe of Afro-Peruvian culture seep deep into your soul.

Goosebumps anyone?
