Lalo Izquierdo is one of the founding members of a dance group called Peru Negro. The group was established 35 years ago to preserve Peru's African heritage through music and dance. Peru Negro is now considered to play such an important part in the preservation of Peru's culture that the government appointed the group to be “ambassadors of Peruvian culture.”
