    Hands of God

    Afro-Peruvian music is rooted in multiples rhythms coming from Africa. Mixing the traditional and the contemporary, from cajón to Jazz, Chocolate composed and played many music styles, taught all over the world and contributed to the creative development of numerous artists including the dance group Peru Negro.

    Julio “Chocolate” Algendones Farfán was a percussionist, one of the most important interpreter of Afro-Peruvian Folk Music, and a worldwide jazz musician. Considered the master of the Peruvian cajón, he was internationally reknown.

    Afro-Peruvian music has its roots in Africa. However, the Africans who arrived in Latin America did so at different periods of time and are from diverse ethnic groups. They created a new identity together with the locals, which reflected a cultural mixture that gave birth to a new esthetic heritage. Peru had one of the largest black populations on the America continent. This created a cultural exchange such as mestizaje, in both the country and the city.
