Event Date
October 12, 2005
-  Negrura Peruana performs the music and dance of Peru's African and criollo population from the coastal region just to the south of Lima, the nation's capital. Group members emigrated from Lima to the Hartford area of Connecticut about ten years ago and formed Negrura Peruana in 2002. Group members learned their music, dances and songs in their neighborhoods in Peru, where music was an important part of celebrations, gatherings and informal competitions. Since its founding, Negrura Peruana has become a popular attraction at events held by the growing Peruvian community in Connecticut.
