Gabriel Alegria's Afro Peruvian Sextet

As far-fetched as it might seem, the Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet that performs at the Bop Stop tonight has ties to Ohio. Band leader Gabriel Alegria was born in Lima in 1970. His father, the playwright Alonso Alegria, was a visiting professor at Kenyon College, and while Gabriel Alegria was there in the mid-'80s, he attended high school in the area. Alegria then studied at the National Conservatory in Lima and at Kenyon College. He earned his Master's in jazz studies at City College in New York and completed his doctorate in jazz studies at the University of Southern California. Twelve years ago, while at USC, he formed his sextet. The Bop Stop performance will celebrate the release of the band’s sixth CD, Diablo en Brooklyn.
