Educational Streaming for MORE THAN 1 YEAR

If you need STREAMING for more than one year, you can obtain it from one of our educational distributors: Alexander Street Press, Films for the Humanities and Sciences or Digitalia Film Library.

In addition, only Digitalia Film Library has the 2019, final version of the documentary, substantially as shown over PBS. Alexander Street Press and Films for the Humanities and Sciences have the earlier, 2017, version.

Delux Educational Packet - PHYSICAL DVDs

This includes everything in the Standard Educational Packet plus an additional documentary produced/directed by Eve A. Ma called A Zest for Life: Afro-Peruvian Rhythms, a Source of Latin Jazz. Its star is Lalo Izquierdo, who will have become familiar to you from Masters of Rhythm.

A Zest for Life, one hour long (with closed captions and chapters), has more historical and cultural information than the more intimate Masters of Rhythm, and compliments it nicely. Indeed, the two together are a great introduction to the Afro-Peruvian community, its history, culture, and performing tradition. Produced in 2015, it aired from coast to coast over individual PBS stations. Find out more about it HERE.

As in the case of the Standard Educational Packet - PHYSICAL DVD, we have set up variable pricing and ship within 24 hours of receiving an order on-line. You may also mail us a Purchase Order which we will process within 10 days of receipt. S&H is $20.
