Reviewers for Percussive Arts Society, EMRO and others have also been enthusiastic. Masters of Rhythm aired over PBS, screened in festivals in five countries on three continents, and won prizes in both the USA and Germany.
It explores the African Diaspora in Peru - its music, dance, and culture - through three master percussionists from the Afro-Peruvian community who we brought together to jam and shoot the breeze. The result is magic. Filmed in Peru, 28 min. long.
