The Peruvian Music Scene

When most people think of Peruvian music, salsa, cumbia, rock and even punk rock may come to mind. But just underneath the surface is a vibrant Afro-Peruvian music scene, which dates back centuries. Afro-Peruvians have contributed to Peruvian culture in many significant ways, especially in the areas of cuisine, sports, and the arts. Never afraid to innovate, Afro-Peruvian musicians have also collaborated with some of the biggest names in electronic music from around the world.

Nazca is a local group from the Northern Virginia area that performs Afro-Peruvian music (mainly Landó and Festejo), Vals, Marinera Norteña, Marinera Limeña, and Tondero, incorporating a dance show into every presentation, making it a more interesting and diverse performance.

Lima, Cañete and Chincha are areas where there are many performers of the Afro-Peruvian music, which is played in night clubs, dinner dances and festivals.  Notable artists and groups through the years have included Victoria and Nicomedes Santa Cruz, Ronaldo Campos, Caitro Soto, Lucila Campos, Pepe Vásquez, Lucila Campos, Lucia De La Cruz, Susana Baca and Eva Ayllón. 

Nazca performs music by Chabuca Granda, Pepe Vasquez, Cesar Miró, Mario Cavagnaro, Victoria & Nicomedes Santacruz, José Escajadillo and Augusto Polo Campos among other composers.
