Exodus To Jazz: The Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet - Tickets are available at the door.
The Afro-Peruvian Sextet has become a Rochester favorite, successfully creating a thriving "scene" around their music.  The Latin Jazz Network says of Gabriel Alegría:  "Every once in awhile there comes a musician who, when playing his or her chosen instrument, seems to carry within a vital life-force that is irrepressible."  The "life-force" projected by the Sextet is often cited as the secret of the band's popular appeal.  Amidst the Afro-Peruvian Sextet's detailed fusion of Afro-Peruvian rhythms and jazz harmonies, lies a very authentic, "earthy" and honest interpretation. Reflecting an immersion in the Black music of Peru's coastal regions, the Sextet's return performance promises to be strong pronouncement: "Your winter garments fling!"
