This song was written in October of 1994, to pay homage to the Lord of Miracles, the oldest fiesta in Peru today. The majority of black communities are united in their deep religiosity.
This image of Christ was painted by a black man the outskirts of colonial Lima. The statue has survived a devastating earthquake, a miracle which gained it devotion and notoriety across the country.
