Gabriel Alegría, Afro-Peruvian Jazz & Dance Company

October 26, 2017

Gabriel Alegría’s Afro-Peruvian Sextet showcases a new project and full-length recording, “El Diablo en Brooklyn.” The piece was inspired by the idea of relocating the Peruvian “Son de los Diablos” tradition, in which mock devils parade down the streets in Lima, to Alegría’s home of Brooklyn.

21CM Takeaway: For 12 years, Peruvian trumpeter Gabriel Alegría and his ensemble have championed a unique mixture of Peruvian, African and jazz music, creating something that feels both modern and nostalgic.
