The final World Stage evening concert on July 10 featured Peruvian music and dance.

Peru Gozando, based in Falls Church, Virginia, played from their diverse repertoire of Peruvian folk music. They were joined by dancers from Raices y Expresiones, a Peruvian dance school with more than 20 years of experience performing Peruvian dances from the costa, sierra, and selva of Peru.
