The Cocodrilo Verde is a performance hall located in the heart of Miraflores (Lima, Peru). One of the few places where you can listen to jazz and where I could attend a tremendous rhythmic experience. Hugo Alcazar Quartet Afro Latin Jazz, is a manifestation of the musical tradition of Peru, under the leadership of the Peruvian drummer and percussionist Hugo Alcazar (nominated for a 2010 Grammy Award). The quartet included Hugo Alcazar, Oscar Stagnaro (bass), Abel García (saxophone), and Jonathan Purizaga (piano). Special guests included Oscar Stagnaro (bass), Martín Gallegos (cajón) and Freddy Huevito Lobatón (cajón).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
