THE SHOW MUST GO ON! The Afro-Peruvian Sextet’s Livestreaming Experience

June 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In times of COVID-19, we will not stop playing for you. We are curating a professional three camara shoot for this special concert!


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 one of the most entertaining bands on the planet…

And we will be damned if we are going to skirt our responsibility to keep you entertained and inspired during these difficult times..

With events being cancelled every day, we want to provide a bright spot in all of that.

This fully curated online concert will feature the band in an acoustically wonderful hall.

No live audience… except 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…


How will this work?

Once you purchase your “ticket,” you will have access to the live stream. We will contact you via email with login-in instructions and several reminders.

Easy Peasy..

All you need is access to the internet.

Headphones are recommended (not required).

The upside is that you can can curl up in the couch and escape with us on your own… or watch with your family!

Whatever is best for you…


We will be streaming the concert from an acoustically perfect hall near New York City.

We are investing in a three-camara shoot for this… so no shaky crappy phone… lighting set up especially for you and as best a sound as we can muster!

More than a concert, you will experience a true movement around one mission: Afro-Peruvian jazz music.

And in times like these, we need to persevere and make good on the saying THE SHOW MUST GO ON!

What will it sound like?

“Primal World Jazz.” “Gritty Afro-Latin Jazz.”

If you like drums and drumming… you will love this show!

If you love beautiful melodies and rich harmonies… this is for you!

If you like music that gives you something that you can feel AND ALSO something to think about… this is for you!

Afro-Peruvian jazz music is a growing movement and tradition that we know will capture your heart and imagination for life.

We could not imagine simply cancelling our live engagements… so we are taking it online!
