Merrimans' Playhouse Jazz Performance Series presents The Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet!
Experience authentic Afro-Peruvian music. It is the most recent expression to come from South Americas rich cultural and musical heritage. The band culls its repertoire from five chart-topping albums and one full length DVD.  They are revered throughout North and South America as the pioneers of Afro-Peruvian jazz music. High-energy execution of African rhythms from coastal Perú constitutes the centerpiece of each Afro-Peruvian Sextet performance.  The musicians use the quijada  (jaw-bone of a donkey), the Peruvian cajón (box drum) and flashy passages of zapateo dancing in performance. The Afro-Peruvian Sextet was established in 2005. The ensembles insistently inventive program of traditional Afro-Peruvian music transformed by Gabriel Alegrías highly personal synthesis of folkloric Afro-Peruvian rhythms, jazz, and other musical strains has led to a signature accomplishment: developing the bands 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.Each member of the Sextet is not only a master musician but also a dedicated and experienced educator. During more than ten years on the road together, the mission of the band has incessantly been to spread the joy and love of Afro-Peruvian music around the world. This has happened both on the stage and through workshops, master classes, after-hour hangs and even cooking (as food and music are inseparable in Afro-Peruvian musical culture, the band is never shy to demonstrate!) As trumpet master Bobby Shew once commented hanging out with these people is a chapter in your life!
