JAZZ | Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet 

If you're a jazz fan, chances are you know the Afro-Cuban music popularized by artists like Dizzy Gillespie. But have you heard the equally engaging Afro-Peruvian music of Gabriel Alegria and his sextet? A trumpeter of extraordinary skill and exuberant style, Alegria has brought his wonderful brand of fusion to festivals around the world. From the energized sax solos of Laura Andrea Leguia to the zapateo dancing of percussionist Freddy "Huevito" Lobatón, every member of Alegria's band embodies the spirit of the music

Gabriel Alegria Afro-Peruvian Sextet performs Friday, April 11, 8 p.m. at Hochstein School of Music, 50 Plymouth Ave. $25-$43, Students $15; ExodusToJazz.com, BrownPaperTickets.com.
