- Culture, Music, Social Issues, Society, and Portrait
In the urban music scene of Lima, Peruâ€™s capital city, only five percent of musicians are women. Traditionally Peruvian families do not encourage their daughters to seriously pursue music because they consider it to be unfeminine and unstable. Amidst this male-dominated musical environment, a group of professional women have come together to create an all-women percussion ensemble called PariÃ³ Paula. Por Fin PariÃ³ Paula reveals how these women are discovering power and creativity through percussion. As they overcome their insecurities about playing music they develop a strong community of women unlike anything they have experienced before.
