ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Warrior Women of Afro-Peruvian Music unites a powerful group of women who are
often overshadowed by their male counterparts in Peruvian culture, yet equally
deserving of the spotlight. These women — vocalists Rosa Guzmán, Charo
Goyoneche, Sofía Buitrón, Araceli Poma, Maricarmen Padilla, Milagros Guerrero, Victoria Villalobos,
and percussionists Catalina “Cata” Robles and Gisella Giurfa — perform separately and together on the album. The singers are supported by memorable guest appearances from harmonica virtuoso and innovator Howard Levy, a
founding member of the Grammy-winning Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, and pianist and multi-Grammy-winning arranger Gil Goldstein.

“We were honored to bring these talented female Afro-Peruvian singers and
percussionists into the studio together for the first time on the same session,” says
Geraghty. “Hearing about the challenges they encounter daily as black female artists in
Peru — the discrimination, invisibility and inequality — made this even more important
to document.” Combining their formidable talents, the Warrior Women now speak with
one voice to their aspirations, their hopes, intending this album as a force for racial and
gender parity for Afro-Peruvian women.

The instrumentation on The Warrior Women of Afro-Peruvian Music blends the voices
of the Warrior Women and the sounds of Afro-Peruvian percussion including cajón,
cajita (“little box”), quijada (donkey jaw bone) and checo (gourd). In the mix are also
electric and acoustic bass (Matt Geraghty), Rhodes and Steinway pianos (Misha
Tsiganov), and nylon-string and electric guitars (Coco Vega, Neal Alger, Ernesto
Hermoza), and Angelique Kidjo drummer Yayo Serka.

The sum total is a music deeply reflective of the rich Afro-Peruvian music scene while forging into new modern musical territory.
