Festival Miami—¡CELEBRACIÓN!—Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet

October 14, 2010 @ 7:00 PM
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; 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!
