A ZEST FOR LIFE: AFRO-PERUVIAN RHYTHMS, A SOURCE OF LATIN JAZZ
Director: Eve A. Ma
Documentary, Color, 57 min.
USA 2011
English and Spanish with English subtitles

Utilizing performance, interviews, historical photographs and a host's narrative, this documentary essay acquaints the viewer with African Peruvian music and dance, a tradition that many don't realize exists. By the show's end, we have enjoyed lively and colorful performances, learned some of the history of a community with strong parallels to African Americans, and become aware that the tradition is in danger of dying out.

Durch Performances, Interviews, historische Fotografien und Erzählungen des Gastgebers macht dieses dokumentarische Essay den Zuschauer mit der Musik und dem Tanz der Afrikanisch-Peruaner bekannt, eine Tradition, von deren Existenz viele nicht wissen. Am Ende der Show haben wir uns an einer lebendigen und farbenfrohen Aufführung erfreut, etwas über die Geschichte einer Gemeinschaft mit starken Parallelen zu Afrikanisch-Amerikanern gelernt und sind uns bewusst darüber, dass diese Tradition in Gefahr ist auszusterben.
