Join us for a night of soulful renditions of Afro-Peruvian rhythms by singer songwriter Marina Lavalle. Lavalle will be accompanied by Pedro Rosales (cajón), Javier Trujillo (guitar), and Carmen Roman (dance).
Afro-Peruvian singer Marina Lavalle was one of Peru Negro's first voices and an important figure in the resurgence of Afro-Peruvian music in the 70's. She is currently one of the most distinctive performers in the Bay Area. Accompanied by a guitar and a Peruvian cajón, Marina renders a soulful and vibrant interpretation of an array of rhythms from her musical heritage. She sings and composes a carefully crafted blend of contemporary and traditional sounds. Most recently Marina was featured as a vocalist on both the soundtrack and film of HBO’s Hemingway & Gellhorn.
Wasska Project is an ensemble that combine Latin American music with classical and contemporary styles. The use of the Peruvian cajon with a classical guitar mixing different effects create an atmosphere that only a voice can bond with that final touch of wood, emotions and music.
