"Kambujo" was born after three musicians with different musical backgrounds and experiences came together to share a common goal: to create and re-create on the basis of Peruvian music and jazz. Therefore Kambujo became a mean of expression and appraisal of their own living culture that is nurtured and transformed over time.
