About this Event

15 years ago a band was started... and it grew into a movement... and a style of music called Afro-Peruvian Jazz Music.

Now music fans like you are part of this extended family.

For the first time ever in the historic Minton's Playhouse in Harlem... and curated by legendary music producer Sparkie Martin...

Ever seen the jaw bone of a donkey in action? Yes, it's a musical instrument and you will see it live!

The Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet is one of the most entertaining bands on the planet... and January 2015 marks 15 years together as a unit.

Afro-Peruvian jazz music is the band's specialty.

It is a rare combination of music that gives you something that you can feel while also giving you something that you can think about.

Loyal fans describe the music as "cool, in a hot kind of way."

The New York Times says:

"The Afro-Peruvian Sextet knows its mission well and has the execution down to a science!"

The Wall Street journal says:

"The Afro-Peruvian Sextet produces a highly simpatico blend of jazz and Latin American rhythms."

And Rifftides adds:

"The Afro-Peruvian Sextet is writing a new chapter in the history of Latin Jazz."

One of the iconic all-time venues in the history of jazz is Minton's Playhouse in Harlem... a fitting setting for the band to celebrate.

Minton's is classy, without being pretentious... check out this video of WHY Gabriel is so excited to play there:

Did you know that die-hard fans of The Afro-Peruvian Sextet regularly follow the band all the way to Peru ?
