Eva Ayllon in Concert

For more than 40 years, Afro-Peruvian singer Eva Ayll??n has lifted theaters to their full capacity not only in Peru--where she can fill a stadium of 30,000--but in venerable U.S. concert venues such as Carnegie Hall.

After emerging in the early '70s, Eva immediately set a landmark by establishing herself as the leading proponent of Afro-Peruvian music. Eva's recording career spans 20 albums including six Latin Grammy nominations.

This fall, Eva will be spreading the joy of Black Peruvian music to North American audiences through her Celebrating Life, Festejando la Vida tour. In concert, Ayll??n focuses on the elegant and lively genres of the coastal plains of Peru. She is known for singing the land??, the festejo, and the vals; all mestizo blends of Peru's indigenous African and Spanish musical heritage.
