New York City, USA – Afro-Peruvian singer Eva Ayllón has a new album set for release September 7th on Times Square.
For thirty years Afro-Peruvian singer Eva Ayllón has been selling out theaters not only at home in Peru -where she can fill a stadium of 30,000- but also in North America as well. For the non-Peruvian audience, this may have gone unnoticed until now. Ayllón focuses on the elegant and lively genres of the coastal plains of Lima in particular. She is known for singing the landó, the festejo, and the vals; all mestizo blends of Peru’s indigenous, African, and Spanish musical heritage. Call-and-response, complex syncopation, and polyrhythms combine with sweet, melancholic melodies to create a sound unique to Peru’s diverse ancestry.
