Peruvian Night by Edward Perez

by Terraza 7 on September 29, 2012

Bassist and composer Edward Pérez joins forces with the powerful voice of  French-Carribean born singer Christelle Durandy to present a night of Peruvian songs. The group presents a repertoire ranging from invigorating festejos to sultry landos, freely combining traditional Afro-Peruvian elements with jazz, funk, and other latin styles, creating a vision of  costal Peruvian music that could only come from New York.

Edward Pérez has performed with many of the  greats in the Afro-Peruvian genre (Eva Ayllón, Chocolate Algendones, Juan  Medrano Cotito, Sergio Valdeos, Chevo Ballumbrosio, Gigio Parodi, etc).  Also known for his work as a jazz bassist, he has toured throughout the  world, performing in many of the worlds foremost venues and  recorded on a CD nominated for Grammy in the category of best Latin-jazz album.
Vocalist Cristelle Durandy is equally at-home in styles ranging from  Salsa to Jazz, Funk and Soul. Since arriving in New York, she has become a  mainstay on the latin scene. She sings with a sweetness that will make an  entire room silent on the edge of their seats or with an infectious energy  that will make an entire crowd dance.
