20.00 Peru Jazz. Welcome to a 'once in a lifetime' experience when the legendary Peru Jazz comes to Ås jazz! Peru Jazz is undoubtedly the most active and progressive band to come out of Peru in recent decades. Their work in creating, researching, and communicating Peruvian rhythms, fused with modern jazz, has brought them prestige and international recognition.

All the members of the band are creators and pioneers of a new type of music that innovatively integrates the traditional musical roots of the coast, highlands, and jungles of Peru with masterful improvisations.
