The educational version-standard packet for Masters of Rhythm with addendum contains the 30-minute documentary (with closed captions and chapters), and several interesting extras to give some 50 minutes of video. The packet also includes a Screening and Discussion Guide, posters and post cards (all in digital format), and the CD Cajón Is King: an Introduction to Afro-Peruvian Music.
The extras include More about Zapateo, Afro-Peruvian Talking Drums, and Juan de Dios Soto cooks carapulcra, an Afro-Peruvian specialty.
Masters of Rhythm has screened in five countries, winning prizes in Germany and USA. The documentary is evergreen, and appropriate for African American Studies, Latino Studies, Ethnomusicology, Anthropology and Music. It focuses on the cajón drum, symbol of Afro-Peruvian culture, an instrument adopted by Latin Jazz and Spanish flamenco.

This includes everything in the Standard Educational Packet plus an additional documentary produced/directed by Eve A. Ma called A Zest for Life: Afro-Peruvian Rhythms, a Source of Latin Jazz. Its star is Lalo Izquierdo, who will have become familiar to you from Masters of Rhythm
A Zest for Life, has more historical and cultural information, as well as more dance. It is one hour long, has closed captions and chapters, and compliments Masters of Rhythm. Indeed, the two together are a great introduction to the Afro-Peruvian community, its history, culture, and performing tradition. Produced in 2015, it aired from coast to coast over individual PBS stations. To find out more about it, go HERE.
