This local ensemble brings us Afro-Peruvian music and dance from the coastal areas of Peru, where indigenous, African, and European influences intersect. “When a Peruvian says, ‘este lugar esta de rompe y raja,’ this means ‘this place is off the chain,’” says founder Gabriela Shiroma. “It’s a typical way to explain to others that if you’re looking for a good time, you’ve come to the right place.”
