Gabriel Alegria and the Un Rezo Jazz Sextet. Complete with cajons, quijadas and zapateo dancing, Un Rezo, featuring master percussionist Hugo Alcazar, has placed Afro-Peruvian rhythmic concepts and the legacy of African-influenced music from coastal Peru solidly into mainstream jazz language for the first time. The importance of this has been compared to the Brazilian and Cuban musical influences which changed jazz music in the 20th century.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m.
