Requests keep coming for photographs from cycling expeditions. Here’s one from the latest. A number of people in the countryside hereabouts raise llamas for fun or profit. High on a hilltop, I came across this herd grazing, which is what llamas do when they’re not sleeping, packing or curiously watching passersby.
It seems logical to follow the photo with music by Peruvians, in this case Gabriel Alegria and his Afro-Peruvian Sextet at their club, Tutuma, on New York City’s east side.
Gabriel Alegria,trumpet; Yuri Juarez, guitar; Huevito Lobaton, cajon, cajita, quijada (jawbone); Ramone Debruyn bass; Shirazette Tinnen, drumset and cajon; Laurandrea Leguia, saxophone
