Sunday Jazz Brunch with The Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet image

The Afro-Peruvian Sextet was established in 2005. The ensemble’s insistently inventive program of traditional Afro-Peruvian music transformed by Gabriel Alegría’s highly personal synthesis of folkloric Afro-Peruvian rhythms, jazz, and other musical strains has led to a signature accomplishment: developing the band’s patented blend of deep scholarship and playfulness into a touring experience that conveys a vast knowledge of the music and, perhaps more importantly, transmits black music from coastal Perú as a way of life to its audiences.

The Afro-Peruvian Sextet has produced seven CDS, one documentary film and one vinyl record to date. Their audiences come from all over the globe.

During your Jazz Brunch experience, you may even be invited to participate in Tour Perú, an innovative concept by which fans of the band literally join the musicians on the road on tour in Peru for 10 days!

With home bases in Lima and New York City, the band has been embraced by both cities. Hot House Magazine awarded the band New York City’s “Best Ensemble of the Year” award and the New York City Jazz Record “Best Latin Jazz Album.”

The band has successfully developed and consolidated a thriving “scene” around Afro-Peruvian jazz music. The Latin Jazz Network described the band in this way:

“Every once in a while there comes a musician who, when playing his or her chosen instrument, seems to carry within a vital life-force that is irrepressible.”

All we need now is you...

Can't wait to see you at our jazz brunch!
