Winner of the IASPM’s Woody Guthrie Award (2007)

In the late 1950s to 1970s, an Afro-Peruvian revival brought the forgotten music and dances of Peru's African musical heritage to Lima's theatrical stages. The revival conjured newly imagined links to the past in order to celebrate—and to some extent recreate—Black culture in Peru. In this groundbreaking study of the Afro-Peruvian revival and its aftermath, Heidi Carolyn Feldman reveals how Afro-Peruvian artists remapped blackness from the perspective of the “Black Pacific,” a marginalized group of African diasporic communities along Latin America's Pacific coast. Feldman's “ethnography of remembering” traces the memory projects of charismatic Afro-Peruvian revival artists and companies, including José Durand, Nicomedes and Victoria Santa Cruz, and Perú Negro, culminating with Susana Baca's entry onto the global world music stage in the 1990s. Readers will learn how Afro-Peruvian music and dance genres, although recreated in the revival to symbolize the ancient and forgotten past, express competing modern beliefs regarding what constitutes “Black Rhythms of Peru.”

About the Author:

HEIDI CAROLYN FELDMAN is a lecturer in the Department of Communication at the University of California, San Diego.

Review:

"After reading this book, one understands perfectly how vanishing cultural traditions can be rescued, reinvented, or reconstructed by a community and its cultural leaders. Brilliantly written, this book is valuable to everyone interested in how traditions are constantly reinvented and resignified." ―Raúl Romero, author of Debating the Past: Music, Memory and Identity in the Andes

"Heidi Feldman has written a complete, well-researched, and captivating book on Afro-Peruvian music―a heritage I am happy to see introduced to the world."―Alex Acuña, drummer, percussionist, and producer

Book Description esleyan University Press, 2007. Softcover. Condition: New. 823 pages. Softcover. New book. MUSIC. How Afro-Peruvian music was forgotten and recreated in Peru. In the late 1950s to 1970s, an Afro-Peruvian revival brought the forgotten music and dances of Peru's African musical heritage to Lima's theatrical stages. The revival conjured newly imagined links to the past in order to celebrate—and to some extent recreate —Black culture in Peru. In this groundbreaking study of the Afro-Peruvian revival and its aftermath, Heidi Carolyn Feldman reveals how Afro-Peruvian artists remapped blackness from the perspective of the "Black Pacific," a marginalized group of African diasporic communities along Latin America's Pacific coast. Feldman's "ethnography of remembering" traces the memory projects of charismatic Afro-Peruvian revival artists and companies, including Jos Durand, Nicomedes and Victoria Santa Cruz, and Per Negro, culminating with Susana Baca's entry onto the global world music stage in the 1990s. Readers will learn how Afro-Peruvian music and dance genres, although recreated in the revival to symbolize the ancient and forgotten past, express competing modern beliefs regarding what constitutes "Black Rhythms of Peru." The Table of Contents of the book is as follows: List of Illustrations • Acknowledgments • Staging Cultural Memory in the Black Pacific • The Criollo Nostalgia of Jos Durand • Cumanana and the Ancestral Memories of Victoria Santa Cruz • The Peruvian Negritud of Nicomedes Santa Cruz • Peru Negro and the Canonization of Black Folklore • The Legend of Chincha • Susana Baca, Immigrant Nostalgia, and the Cosmopolitan Soul of Black Peru • Conclusion: Beginnings • Glossary • Endnotes • References • Index. Heidi Carolyn Feldman is a lecturer in the Department of Communication at the University of California, San Diego. "Feldman. examines the recent history of Afro-Peruvian music and dance. Feldman doesn't shy away from tough questions on race and authenticity and on the effects of modernity and tourism on Peru's folklife. She looks closely at the double-edged sword of racial identity. The book is well-researched and written in a clear, lively voice, avoiding unnecessary jargon. Terms unfamiliar to lay readers are defined in a short glossary at the end. Like any good researcher, Feldman leaves the door open for further exploration and much discussion."—Dirty Linen Magazine (Key Words: Peru, Afro-Peruvian Music, Rhythm, Heidi Carolyn Feldman). book.
