The confluence of a worldwide pandemic, a whole lot of masks, 120 determined fans, and a poem-gone-viral have produced the bold and brilliant new album Social Distancing, on which the Gabriel Alegría Afro-Peruvian Sextet powerfully connects with planet Earth’s new reality. From relentless percussive chaos to sublime harmonies of healing, every moment of this recording delivers the listener from the confusion of the 2020 pandemic into an undeniably safe place: A new home called Afro-Peruvian jazz music.
