About Band

On Perujazz Perujazz is undoubtedly the most stimulating group to come out of Perú in recent years. Their work creating, researching, and divulging Peruvian rhythms fused with contemporary jazz has won them prestige and international acclaim. All of the members of the group are creators and pioneers of a new type of music that coherently and innovatively integrates the traditional musical roots from the coast, the highlands, and the jungle of Perú with masterly improvisations. Traditional instruments such as the quena, the zampońa, the cajón, the bongo, and ritual seed pods are combined (without losing their purity) with a tenor sax, an electric bass, and drums, and harmonized with synthesized, electronic sound and effects. PERUJAZZ reflects, in this fashion, a new image of contemporary Perú: ethnic roots blended with contemporary technique - the "primitive" with the sophisticated. The music of PERUJAZZ takes us on an intense trip through the diverse landscapes of Perú, and as we listen to it we are hearing the birth of a new sound, that corresponds to today´s Perú, a country whose age-old essence and cultural tradition are like the music of PERUJAZZ, a universal language accessible to everyone. more info, visit:
