A high point of each Sunset Wednesday includes a live performance on the grassy expanse of the Great Lawn, overlooking the majestic Palisades. Caracumbe is an Afro-Peruvian ensemble, an extraordinary assemblage of professional dancers and musicians, many former members of the famed Peru Negro Ballet. Directed by master percussionist Marcos Napa, the group exemplifies a compelling artistic tradition with its rich blend of traditional music and dance. For Sunset Wednesdays, the ensemble of six is singer, guitar player, two percussionists—on cajon and congas—and two dancers. Dances often performed include the festejo, lando and zamacueca.
