Eva Ayllón Announces Select November Tour Dates In Miami, Boston, New York, And Chicago
Published October 16, 2008

Peru's most celebrated musical artist Eva Ayllón, the “Queen of Afro-Peruvian Soul,” returns to the U.S. stage this November, bringing her magnificent interpretations of her country's folkloric música criolla – a soul-stirring blend of native Peruvian, African and Spanish music. The two-time Latin Grammy nominee, who has made millions of fans around the world over a 30-year career, makes her debut in Miami on Saturday, November 1 at the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall at Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County, followed by concerts at Berklee Performance Center in Boston, Carnegie Hall in New York City, and the House of Blues in Chicago.

Ayllón's performance features accompaniment by an eight-member band which includes two outstanding young soloists, guitarist Luis Manrique and pianist Moises Lamas, plus a powerhouse rhythm section led by the Campos brothers from the group Perú Negro who are masters of the authentic Peruvian cajón, a crate-like percussion instrument that is said to have been first played by slaves in Perú. Her repertoire ranges from the romantic Spanish songs known as “valses” of coastal Peru to the distinctive rhythms brought by African slaves: the sensual lando, the throbbing festejo, and the bawdy, insouciant alcatraz.

Among the highlights of Ayllón's performance is her rendition of the Afro-Peruvian standard “Toro Mata” – a number that showcases the star's exhilarating vocals and exuberant dance moves.


Recognized as the leading exponent of Afro-Peruvian music, Ayllón has 4 platinum records, 10 gold records, and two Latin Grammy nominations for Eva and To My Country, an album she recorded with Los Hijos del Sol and Alex Acuña. Eva has toured all over the world, including Europe, Japan, Canada, and has performed with some of Latin music's biggest recording stars, including Marc Anthony, Raphael, Alex Lora, Pedro Aznar, El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, Armando Manzanero, and Kjarkas.

Eva's most recent CD release is Eva! Leyenda Peruana (Eva! Peruvian Legend) on Times Square Records. In 2006 she released the concert DVD Eva Ayllón En Vivo: Live from Hollywood which
