Gabriel Alegría & the Afro-Peruvian Sextet to Perform
Please join us on the front steps of the library to enjoy a 30-minute performance by Vail Series musicians Gabriel Alegría & the Afro-Peruvian Sextet. Rain location: library atrium.
“The ensemble’s insistently inventive program of traditional Afro-Peruvian music transformed by Gabriel Alegría’s highly personal synthesis of folkloric Afro-Peruvian rhythms, jazz, and other musical strains has led to a signature accomplishment: developing the band’s 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 Peru as a way of life to its audiences.”
Main Vail Series performance will be on Thursday October 6th at 7PM in Swasey Chapel.
