Due to construction delays the opening of Tutuma Social Club, a new restaurant/music venue in New York City combining the best in live contemporary Afro-Peruvian Jazz with the fusion cuisine of Peruvian tapas and other dishes, has been postponed until Tuesday May 12, 2009.

The May 2009 music calendar for Tutuma now presents pianist Andy Milne in the debut of the series “Jazz Goes Afro-Peruvian” (5/12-17); vocalist Sofia Rei Koutsovitis in the series “Songs From Argentina To Per” (5/19-24); and the debut of the series “Jazz From Per” with vocalist Pilar de la Hoz (5/26-31). The series “Ritmos Negros del Per” will feature percussionist and Zapateo dancer Freddy ‘Huevito’ Lobatn (5/12-13) and Marcos Napa ‘Bombo’ (May 19-20 & 26-27). Lobatn will also appear during “Lunchtime Criollo” (5/12-18). The Afro-Peruvian Sextet of trumpeter Gabriel Alegra, currently artistic advisor to Tutuma Social Club, will appear 5/14-17 and the NYU Afro-Peruvian Jazz Ensemble will appear on 5/18.

Trumpeter Ingrid Jensen & drummer Jon Wikan and vocalist Angela Vicente, who were originally scheduled to perform at Tutuma April 28-May 11 will be re-scheduled to appear at dates to be announced later.

Located at 164 East 56th St. (at Third Ave.), Tutuma Social Club will be the only locale in the region showcasing both Afro-Peruvian jazz and food on a daily basis. Unlike most clubs presenting “live” music, Tutuma will have neither a cover charge nor a minimum. Music will be featured weekdays at lunch with evening sets presented Monday-Sunday at 8 and 10:30 p.m. Tutuma’s kitchen will be open daily from 11 a.m.-2 a.m. An Afro- Peruvian Jazz Brunch, also accompanied by “live” music, will be held Sundays from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

About Tutuma Social Club Tutuma Social Club is the only locale outside Per showcasing both Afro-Peruvian jazz and cuisine on a daily basis and its “no cover charge/no minimum” policy further distinguishes it from other music venues. The new venture is the brainchild of Santina Matwey, a second-generation restaurateur whose family founded and operates the RayBari Pizza parlors in Manhattan, who has effectively imported to New York City the atmosphere found in traditional peñas, the vibrant urban clubs of Per. Dr. Gabriel Alegra, a jazz trumpeter and composer known as one of the world’s leading proponents of Afro- Peruvian Jazz, is the club’s artistic advisor. Evening sets by established jazz artists from North and South America will be presented Monday-Sunday at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. with “live” music also featured weekdays at lunch and on from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sundays during an Afro-Peruvian Jazz Brunch. Tutuma’s menu was expressly designed by two of Per’s internationally acclaimed chefs Rodrigo Conroy and Carlos Testino and its kitchen will be open daily from 11 a.m.-2 a.m. A membership rewards program is available to repeat customers.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
