Eva Ayllón – Negra Presuntuosa

Tania Libertad – Negra Presuntuosa

Julie Freundt – Negra Presuntuosa

Algo de mi se ha perdido
Entre tu casa y mi casa
Será el calor que no abrasa
No es de gozo
No es de ira
Como tampoco es mentira
Que algo de ti se ha escondido
Entre tu calle y mi alma

Será tal vez la esperanza
De un cariño adormecido
Yo sabré reír
Yo sabré llorar
Yo sabré entregarte mi cariño

Negra que te quiero
Negra presuntuosa
Que me estoy muriendo
Vida de tu boca
Que me está pisando
Los talones de la libertad

Landó is an Afro-Peruvian form of music in the musica criolla genre. Its unique sound had been likened to the American blues genre.
Landó developed from a dance in Angola called londu that came with slaves when they arrived in Brazil. Even today, in Brazil, the Angolan influenced londo is played. Hence, the Landó is a mix of both Spanish and African rhythms. It features a slower tempo and call and response vocalization. The signature instrument of the Landó is the cajon, a box-like drum. This instrument was improvised by West Africans after they were taken to South America without instruments or other possessions.
Landó is still a very popular musical style in Peru. Peruvian musician Eva Ayllon is one of its most popular performers along with the band Perú Negro. Actually, Victoria Santa Cruz and her late brother poet Nicomedes Santa Cruz are recognized in Peru and all of Latin America as the one's responsible for maintaining not only the presence but having the contributions of the African diaspora acknowledged in Peru and all of Latin America. Nicomedes and Victoria contributed musically but also as intellectuals through various academic publications and documentaries from the late 1950s to present time.
