ALLY is a bridge between Afro-Peruvian and Caribbean music and jazz styles. The spirit of their music emanates from the creative contributions of every band member. All are versatile, adept and open to trying di?erent directions. The result is a raw, organic synergy of rhythmic knowledge, quirky jazz harmonies, improvisation and seamless arrangements.
It is a foray into Afro-Peruvian experimentalism that balances the frenetic pace of a festejo with the restraint of a vals or the coolness of a Latinized Thelonius Monk melody. Joining us for this concert is Australian Peruvian singer and dynamo Melody Rivera.
