Enjoy a documentary about lively Afro-Peruvian music and dance (filmed in Peru and California).
Featuring Lalo Izquierdo (dancer, choreographer, percussionist, and folklorist of his Afro-Peruvian community) along with local Bay Area performing group “de Rompe y Raja.”
Then sit back for the ride as Peta Robles shows off her wonderful skills with the fast and exciting Afro-Peruvian zapateo fancy footwork dancing.
All this in the Oakland (CA) Library, Lakeview Branch (550 El Embarcadero, near Eastshore Park and Lake Merritt).
(P.S. The documentary, called “A Zest for Life: Afro-Peruvian Rhythms, a Source of Latin Jazz,” screened in film festivals in three countries!)
