Fiesta Negra: Celebrating Afro-Peruvian Music & Dance

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
This performance features powerful rhythms alongside joyful and melancholic melodies, reflecting on the story of African descendants in Peru and paying tribute to Afro-Peruvian musicians and dancers. Featuring over 40 Peruvian performers on stage, the performance utilizes instruments created almost two centuries ago by slaves in Peru. Fiesta Negra was formed in 1980 by musician Jesus Moreno. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a number of the ensemble’s artists seeking better housing and medical attention.
