Monday on Worldview features this fascinating segment from WorldVision Report and producer Cynthia Graber about an Afro-Peruvian dance troupe called Peru Negro. Here's what WorldVision has to say about the group:

When Peruvian troupe Peru Negro performs, audiences are in for a treat of music and dance from almost two dozen performers. But the group represents much more than a night out. They are part of a musical renaissance, reclaiming the history and culture of Afro-Peruvians.
