Peruvian Jazz Pop Up Brunch and "jarana"
The unquestionable pioneers of Afro-Peruvian Jazz music in the world are the Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet.
This is a rare opportunity to attend a "Pop Up Brunch" Performance, which will take place in mid town Manhattan!
The theme is "28 de Julio" which is a sacred day in Peru! The band will uncover the secrets of Afro-Peruvian jazz music in an afternoon-long "peña" style performance.
If you don't know what that is... this is your chance to be immersed in the joys of the coastal criollo culture of Peru (hint: this does not involve llamas, pan flutes or mountains)
Peruvian food "with a jazz twist" will be served!
A bottle of Pisco will grace each table and you will learn how to make Chilcanos... the ideal summer drink for you to show off to your friends!
If you ever wanted to get immersed in a culture, this is as close as you are going to get without hopping on a plane!
An afternoon full of Afro-Peruvian jazz music, culture and food. Can't wait to see you there!
