Authentic reflection on

the story of African descendants in Peru

This major event recognizes incredible Afro-Peruvian musicians and dancers who have spent most of their lives entertaining audiences around the world.

If you´re a music fan you won´t want to miss Fiesta Negra: Celebrating Afro-Peruvian Music & Dance

This show features a powerful rhythmic sound that incorporates some joyful and melancholic melodies side-by-side to create an authentic reflection on the story of African descendants in Peru. Taking place at the world-renowned Carnegie Hall, this show will bring over 40 performers on stage from Peru. This genre of music uses typical instruments created almost two centuries ago by slaves in Peru as a means to distract themselves from all the hardships they encountered at the time. Instruments like the ‘quijada de burro’ which uses a real donkey’s jaw and at least 5 other original instruments will prominently be featured at the concert. Encounter a rich and cultural history of the brave people who created this incredible musical movement that is staple to Peruvian culture and now enjoyed worldwide.

Fiesta Negra

Paying tribute to these ground-breaking icons and their families at one of the most prestigious concert halls in the world, this event will take you on a journey through the evolution of this music and its greatest stars alongside their stories. The Afro-Peruvian group, Fiesta Negra, was formed in 1980 by musician Jesus Moreno, who has been in the scene for over 40 years. He is a very experienced and passionate musician who has first handedly witnessed the growth of this genre around the world and wants to share his knowledge with the US. A portion of the proceeds will go to ensure that some of these less fortunate artists get better housing, medical attention and quality of life.
