Donkey jaw bones and dance beats


Christoph Mueller of the band Gotan Project and Peruvian percussionist Rodolfo Munoz give an impromptu demonstration of Afro-Peruvian music.

The old friends have collaborated under the name Radiokijada on an album which uses traditional Peruvian instruments like the 'quijada', the lower jawbone of a donkey.

Christoph explains the instruments' historical background, and how they can be fused with modern dance music.

The Latin-influenced music of Mueller's Gotan Project has appeared in shows as diverse as Sex and the City and Top Gear.
