Jean-Pierre Magnet 'Perujazz'

Pizza Express Jazz Club, W1D 3RW , [Venue Details]

Perujazz is one of the most emblematic jazz bands in South America. For around forty years, they have managed to shape their own language from the synthesis of Peruvian traditional music (from the coast, the highlands, and the rainforest) with modern jazz styles.

Starting from these rhythms, Perujazz has developed a path of improvisation which eventually results in a fresh and powerful genre itself, arising from the question “What does Peru sound like? Perujazz’s vibrant concerts is a must for those seeking unique world music experiences.

Perujazz is undoubtedly the most stimulating band to come out of Peru over the last few decades. All the band members 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 Peru with masterly improvisations.

Traditional instruments such as the cajon, the bongo, and ritual seed pods are combined (without losing their purity) with a tenor sax, an electric bass, an electroacoustic guitar and drums, and harmonized with synthesized electronic sound and effects. Perujazz reflects, in this fashion, a new image of contemporary Peru: ethnic roots blended with contemporary technique – the ‘primitive’ with the sophisticated.
