With a legendary voice that embodies the spirit of a nation, Eva Ayllón is one of Peru’s most enduring stars. She’s been called the ‘Tina Turner from Peru’ and the ‘Queen of landó (a traditional Afro-Peruvian musical form) for her larger-than-life stage personality and fearsome dance chops. Infused with colorful sounds and flavors from the coastal plains of Lima, Ayllón’s music overflows with her country’s indigenous, African, and Spanish musical heritage in a style called música criolla, in which call-and-response, complex syncopation, and polyrhythms combine with sweet, melancholic melodies to create a unique and powerful sound.
