Album Description

Afro Peruvian Jazz Orchestra is a 20-piece ensemble that specializes in Afro Peruvian music. The band combines elements of Jazz and traditional Peruvian rhythms which result in fresh sounds and creative new melodies. APJO was created by Anibal Seminario and Lorenzo Ferrero, both Peruvian composers/woodwind players. The music performed by the band is both original material and original arrangements of traditional Peruvian tunes. Some of the traditional rhythms enveloped within the performances are Lando, Festejo, Marinera, Zamacueca, and many others.. APJO recently debuted its first album, Tradiciones, advocating the marvelous culture and influential music of Peru. This debut album has captured the hearts of many around the world, resulting in their debut album receiving two Latin Grammy nominations.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
