Project Description

Cunamacué was founded in 2010 by Carmen Román in Oakland, California with the purpose of bringing visibility to the presence and cultural knowledge of the African descendant population in Peru. The company promotes the continuity of Afro-Peruvian culture, representing it not as a point in time, but as a living, vibrant and evolving form whose music and dance can be used as a means of contemporary expression. We aim to be an incubator of Afro-Peruvian culture through dance and music performances; choreographies; documentaries; educational programs in schools; workshops; and dance publications.
