LatiNegr@s Project: Susana Baca
Famosa Afro-Peruvian singer of over 3 decades, Susana Baca, is a pioneer in the Afro-Peruvian movement. Sometimes I just want to post fotos and songs and lyrics because the musica speaks more than I could ever write.
Let these songs and the musica be texts for your to consume, absorb, and learn from. What do you hear? Do you hear the indigenous instruments de Peru? De Africa?
Here's a trailer from the documentary based on her life: Susana Baca Memoria Viva
