Maurice Gusman Concert Hall, University of Miami
Trumpeter and composer Gabriel Alegría presents a unique form of World Jazz that combines his distinctive approach to the jazz trumpet with the rich heritage of Afro-Peruvian music. The Gabriel Alegría Afro-Peruvian Sextet features saxophonist Laura Andrea Leguía; acoustic guitarist Yuri Juárez; drummer Shirazette Tinnin; bassist Pablo Menares; and master percussionist Freddy “Huevito” Lobatón, who plays the traditional Afro-Peruvian instruments cajón (box drum) and quijada (jaw bone) and adds spectacular passages of zapateo dancing to each performance. Good grooves abound! Afro-Peruvian style is the newest musical voice to come from Latin America and Festival Miami is bringing it to YOU!
