More about Soy Andina:

Soy Andina tells the story of two women who reconnect to their Peruvian identity through dance. Nélida Silva is an immigrant living in New Jersey who returns to her Andean village to host the annual patron saint festival. Cynthia Paniagua, a modern dancer raised in New York City, travels to Peru on a quest to study Peruvian dance and deepen the connection to her own roots. Soy Andina premiered at Lincoln Center, toured Peru on a U.S. Embassy-sponsored cultural tour, screened at film festivals and universities nationwide, and aired on Latino Public Broadcasting's "Voces" series on national public television.
