UNA JARANA DE VERDAD featuring Maestro Freddy "Huevito" Lobaton

Freddy "Huevito" Lobaton is cosidered to be the greatest cajon player in the world. His extensive career has led to performances and recordings with every makor name in Afro-Peruvian music: Eva Ayllon, Susana Baca, Peru Negro, Caitro Soto, Oscar Avilez, Arturo "Zambo" Cavero and Pepe Villalobos are just a few of the house-hold names that Huevito has worked with throughout the years. Moe importantly, Huevito carries with him the legacy of "the jarana..." a high level musical get-together where Afro-Peruvian song is shared.

Surrounded by an incredible cast, MAestro Lobaton will bring to life the true significance of a Peruvian "jarana."
