“Ciudad De Los Reyes delivers. It’s that rare thing: a new, real jazz record that swings in an honestly original way.” – All About Jazz

Trumpet and flugelhorn virtuoso Gabriel Alegria is one of the most influential figures on the current jazz scene in Peru. His combination of passion and scholarship has resulted in a revolutionary blend of Afro-Peruvian music that forges a Latin link between the African-influenced music of coastal Peru and American jazz. Alegria and his band have won over a dozen awards for their four CDs and are touring in support of 2013’s Ciudad De Los Reyes. Freddy “Huevito” Lobatón percussion, Shirazette Tinnin drums, Yuri Juárez acoustic guitar, Laura Andrea Leguía saxophone and John Benitez bass
