"I listen to peru negro every time I get in my car. I absolutely love this cd. My friend is a jazz musician and he loves this cd because of the rhythm. Never off beat.... It is definitely worth buying. Back to the roots...very traditional. Please, Please buy this. You won't be disappointed."
If they could do something about the vocals...

"It is always a pleasure to see a collection of some of the most popular Peruvian negroide songs, but I was interested in hearing Peru Negro's rendition. For those who are not familiar, the group is most famous for their dance performances of the music genre and have achieved international notoriety.
But this was such a disappointing experience. The musical arrangement had me tapping my feet from the first couple of notes, that is until the vocals came in. The lead singer's voice (anyone knows her name?) lacked warmth, it had no color, and it was strident! Talk about ear fatigue. I had to stop playing this album soon after the second track started.
It was a pity, specially when you compare her voice to other performers like Eva Ayllon, Cecilia Barraza, Susana Baca, or the popular Lucila Campos.
