Recommended Listening
Susana Baca: Afrodiaspora – On Afrodiaspora Susana Baca widens her net, wonderfully. Afro-Peruvian music’s pre-eminent singer/researcher/champion feels Cuban, Colombian, Ecuadorian, Argentinean and Puerto Rican music, “as if it were mine…our whole selves are all about the mixture of Spanish, Indian and African.”

Quechua – Imagine that while growing up, your parents spoke to each other in a language you didn’t understand, using another language for you and your siblings. Gabina Funegra was exposed, in this way, to Quechua during her early childhood in Peru.
