Based in Oakland and dedicated to preserving Afro-Peruvian traditions from the coastal region of Peru, the De Rompe y Raja Cultural Association will perform Son de los Diablos, a street masquerade that originated in colonial Lima with parades through Afro-Peruvian neighborhoods during carnival time. Dancers will wear masks made in Peru by Grupo Cultural Yuyachkani and locally by Edmund Badeaux (of the Chaskinakuy Andean music group).
