SOCIAL DISTANCING: The Afro-Peruvian Sextet CD Release Concert Live Stream

ON NOVEMBER 27th... COVID-19 may have cancelled public performances... but not if we go online and play for you there! Ever seen the jaw bone of a donkey in action? Yes, it's a musical instrument and you will see it live from the comfort of your own home! If you own a computer, laptop, tablet or phone you can watch this concert! The show MUST and WILL go on. Are you with us? The Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet is releasing a new album called Social Distancing! And we will be damned if we are going to skirt our responsibility to keep you entertained and inspired during partial or complete shut downs.. New music by Gabriel Alegría, Laura Andrea Leguía and Mario Cuba! Wherever you are around the world... we want to provide a bright spot for you to enjoy great live music! This fully curated online concert will feature the band playing music from the new CD Social Distancing! The band and you... sitting wherever you'd like around the world... on your computer or mobile device. Afro-Peruvian Jazz Music is a rare combination of music that gives you something that you can feel while also giving you something that you can think about. Loyal fans describe the music as "cool, in a hot kind of way." The New York Times says: "The Afro-Peruvian Sextet knows its mission well and has the execution down to a science!" The Wall Street journal says: "The Afro-Peruvian Sextet produces a highly simpatico blend of jazz and Latin American rhythms." And Rifftides says: "The Afro-Peruvian Sextet is writing a new chapter in the history of Latin Jazz." While we understand how scary the current conditions are, we also understand ours to be a responsibility. The show must go on and we will focus all of our energies in providing the best night of music you've ever heard online... And if you are in a Time Zone that puts this concert at an inconvenient time, we will make a replay link available for 48 hours after the show... so even if you miss it, you can still catch it!
