THE GABRIEL ALEGRIA AFRO-PERUVIAN SEXTET
provides an engaging and rhythmic interpretation of jazz that brings the listener to life in a world of call-and-response. It is a musical culture and community that is cool, in a hot kind of way. The band’s music infuses jazz with the rhythms, instruments and passionate commitment found in Afro-Peruvian music from Coastal Peru. This is World Jazz that is primal. Gritty Afro-Latin jazz. The sound track to an urban jungle. The music is new, but deeply rooted in tradition. It is accessible and colorful. Gabriel has created a growing jazz movement and tradition to capture your heart and imagination for life. Fair Warning: The music is spicy.
