De Cajon Project: De Inga Y Mandinga
Featuring local and international artists, "De Inga Y Mandinga" is a bilingual English-Spanish multidisciplinary piece that explores Peruvian mixed-ethnic and cultural heritage from an Afro-Peruvian perspective. The word Inga is a Castilianisation of the word Inca a reference made to Peruvian indigenous heritage. Mandinga, sometimes also referred to as Mandingo or Mandinka refers to the enslaved West African peoples who were brought to the Americas. "El que no tiene de inga tiene de mandinga" (those who do not have indigenous blood have African blood) is a popular Peruvian say to explain that most Peruvians have mixed heritage. This show is a tribute to Peruvian rich ancestry.
