Director Statement

"Heritage: La Película" is a wonderful way to re-encounter Peruvian music, something that my father always cultivated. However, everything I thought I knew about it ended up being meager. I thought I knew the rhythms of Peru, but suddenly I realized my absolute ignorance. "Heritage: The Movie" became a journey for all of us who participated in it. In the hand of Nicole Pillman we were surprised by the discoveries that we were beginning to make on the way. Nicole's fourth album became the engine to go further and try to generate awareness, especially in new generations about our Peruvian music.

The tape has two very marked parts that I like to call theory and practice. So first we talked with legends and researchers of Peruvian music and then see the execution, by young musicians, of new songs within the rhythms of Peru. The trip has nurtured us and we hope that this will happen with the spectators.

Surely there is much more to discover, but I think it is worth the effort to search our heritage to create new proposals that impact on new generations.
