PERU: Lima, Chincha & Cuzco.2008 AFRO LATINOS doc. part II of V

The 2nd part of this photo diary is all about the visit to Peru Negro and the encounters we had with the Afro Peruvians in Lima.
Peru Negro’s Ronnie Campos was kind to allow us an interview right before departing to Argentina for a show with Eva Ayllon. Marcos was also present but we didn’t get to interview him. I was able to spend some time with Edu, the youngest member of the group and Ronnie’s last son. Also there are some photos from “la Peña del Carajo” in Barranco, where Eder Campos (Ronnie’s eldest son works) along with Jose Duran, also a dance for Peru Negro, where working at “del Carajo” during our visit. To our surprise the venue had prepare a fusion dance combine Afro Peruvian dances with dances from the Andes. A particular dance popular to the tourism call “el baile de las tijeras” “the dance of the scissors” typical dance from the city of Ayacucho, high in the Andes. The dance trio was directed by Eder Campos (eldest son of Ronnie Campos) and Jose Duran, dance for Peru Negro. The night was full of energy. It was the pre-celebration of Oct 31 “Dia de la music Criolla” “Day of Creole music in Peru”. Here are some ‘moments capture by our lens. Enjoy!

The streets of Lima was in full celebration of Oct 31st and the ending of “mes morado” with the ‘procession’ of “El Señor de los Milagros” a very profound walk with an image of Jesus on the cross. The entire month ‘devotes’ of the image, walk across the city asking for miracles and forgiveness of sins. Here are the photos from that day, which also is the celebration of Creole music.

We arrived in “Chincha” Capital of Afro Peruvian Folklore and Culture. We arrived early in the morning around 8:30 am. To our surprise again, we didn’t see any black people around. We started to talk toward the ‘Plaza Mayor’ or as we relate to a ‘Union Square’.
As we kept walking we encounter a black kid by the name if ‘Jimmy’, we asked him about the places in Chincha where we can find performances or groups that are active in the culture. Jimmy happen to be a dance/percussionist, he took us to his dad, Prof. Cartagena. A dance instructor/director of his own band. Here are more photos from Chincha and Jimmy taking us around the city, where he is very well known.

Visitamos la casa de ‘Amador Ballumbrosio’ uno de los ultimos fundarores de la cultura Afro Peruana. Originador del ‘Zapateo’ en Chincha. Amador es el origen de la Familia “Ballumbrosio” la cual esta formada de varios hijos e hijas. Todos son bailarines y musicos. Roberto Ballumbrosio es el menor de los hijos. Tubimos la suerte de encontrarnos con el y tener una filmacion sobre el origen del cajon.
