The Afro-Peruvian Foundation for the Arts brings the best of New York City's Afro-Peruvian inspired projects to The Zinc Bar. Every last Friday of the month look for world premieres, new artistic collaborations and some of the best Peruvian cocktails in the city!

8pm: The evening opens with the world premiere of a new project called D.M.Q. . Like a fine wine from Portugal or a perfectly tempered tiradito from Northern Peru, the music presented by these artists is designed to evoke feelings of heritage and nostalgia. The fast-paced urban setting which is New York City infuses the music with a bright citrus marinade of sound created by the distinct combination of keyboards, cajon and vocals. The rhythms of Coastal Peru such as the festejo, lando and valse criollo are all at the center of a well-known repertoire of Peruvian standards perfectly crafted and arranged. D.M.Q. is Hector Morales (Peru) on the cajon, Maria Quintanilla (Peru) on vocals and Renato Diz De Sousa (Portugal) on the keyboards.

10pm & 11:45pm: The Gabriel Alegría Afro-Peruvian Sextet has become synonymous with the Afro-Peruvian jazz music movement worldwide. With five CDs and one DVD to their credit the band has been together since 2005 and performed over 800 times. Most recently the group was named New York City's "Band of the Year" by Hot House Magazine and "Latin Jazz Band of the year" by The New York City Jazz Record. Highlights from the press include:

“An immersion in the black music of Peru’s coastal regions.” - Time Out New York

"to be loved by progressives and block-party dancers alike." --Downbeat Magazine

"a well conceived and perfectly executed celebration of culture through music." --The New York City Jazz Record

"rhythm-saturated, orchestrally-enticing performances that are the definition of sonic joy." Latino Magazine

“A new chapter in the history of Latin Jazz” - Rifftides Guest mixologist Gabrielle Foss will lead the Zinc team in the creation of classics such as the pisco sour and chilcanos.
