Bio: The Chicago-based, Peruvian born percussionist leads this quintet that seamlessly blends Peruvian folk rhythms with jazz. One of the hottest bands on the Chicago club and festival scene, the band’s debut CD release received 4 stars in Downbeat magazine, “The tunes feature continuously evolving structures and shimmering harmonies fueled by joyous Peruvian grooves not commonly encountered by Northern ears. These specific native rhythms and styles include Peruvian festejo, as heard on the ecstatic, head-spinning highlight “Tiene Picante,” landó, as featured on the slow and sensual “Negra Presuntuosa,” and the ancient Andean rhythm huayno, which lends a delightful swinging lope to “Chakana.”
