Time period: One month
Number of hours: 180 hours

This course is for students interested in focusing popular culture through music and their different contexts recreational, ceremonial and ritual. Students will visit important Peruvian celebrations in three different geographical areas: in the area of the coast, we will see the creole tradition and migrant party in the populous city of Lima. In the Andes, we accompany different traditional dances offered in Pisac, an ancient Inca village in Cusco. And in the Amazon, we meet the Ashaninka, native with an ancestral tradition of song and narrative about the Amazon jungle of Junín. While in Cusco and Junin, students will integrate themselves into the host community and local customs.
