Pick of the Week: Gabriel Alegría Afro-Peruvian Sextet (3/19)

The Gabriel Alegría Afro-Peruvian Sextet, formed in 2005 by trumpeter Alegría and drummer Hugo Alcázar, makes its Cleveland debut on Tuesday, March 19 at Nighttown. While the band’s music incorporates the expected Latin and African rhythms, there’s also a lush, orchestrated feel to much of what they do, a quality found most readily in its leader’s sailing trumpet passages. Show starts at 7 p.m. $20.
