â€œUp and Outâ€ the Canadian produced reality TV show that travels the globe experiencing different cultures by way of their music, shot its first episode in Peru, over the course of three weeks in November and December. The crew, made up of Geordie Trifa (cinematographer) and Adam Evanik (sound technician) both of CTV News and hosts – Roanne Kosokowski with her two young daughters, arrived in Lima in early December after two weeks in the Andes and southern jungles of Peru. In the capital city, they met up with Felipe Alberto, who, in collaboration with the efforts of Pasache Music, traveled from Calgary, Canada to submerge them into the world of Musica Criolla. Amongst other things they met with living legend and composer JosÃ© (Pepe) Villalobos Cavero at his restaurant and club Casa de Pepe Villalobos. The group also experienced a traditional jarana (a get-together with song, dance, and food), in the iconic CallejÃ³n del Buque, a residential complex of the early twentieth century that was home to numerous poets and musical figures such as composer FÃ©lix Pasache; the musical group Peru Negro; and the famous Valentina Barrionuevo. While at the jarana they were joined by guitarists Carlos Ayala and Oscar AvilÃ©s Jr., cajonista Coqui Leturia, singer Carlos Castillo, and singers/television personalities such as Julio Andrade, Julie Freundt, and Ebelin Ortiz, who joined the festivities and of course deigned to share their talent in song and dance at the gathering.
Felipe Alberto will perform at the Real Club, in Lima, PerÃº, at 20:00 hrs on December 11, 2015 accompanied by the renowned Willy Terry and Renzo Gil on guitar and Carlos Postigo Miranda on keys.
Felipe Alberto will perform at La Vida Misma, in the Miraflores district of Lima, Peru on December 8, 2015 at 21:30 hrs.
Llora, Llora CorazÃ³n is a folk song from northern Peru of the early 20th century, popularized in the 60s by Carmencita Lara. This track is included in Felipe Albertoâ€™s Alma del Ayer album. Alma del Ayer is a collection of traditional Peruvian music recorded and produced independently in Saskatoon, Canada in the studio of Josh J. Palmer. All the songs were recorded with traditional instruments to maintain the authenticity of the criollo and and andean musical genres. Alma del Ayer is a work inspired by love for Peruvian music and the musical legacy of the latin america.

After a wonderful evening of performing alongside Manuel Donayre, we had an early start to Sunday, July 26 in the recording studio of Akira Yimura, in the city of Callao. I had the pleasure of starting my day recording and producing for Pasache Musicâ€™s latest project, Proyecto Tradicional: Media Noche en Lima, along with the famed Lina Maria Estrada of Medellin, Colombia (daughter of world salsa legend Fruko Estrada), and the mastery of Alejandro VelÃ¡squezâ€™s guitar.

The summer tour of Alma del Ayer culminates in Peru for the week of Fiestas Patrias. After the sold out show Homenaje a Pasache on April 18, 2015 in Port Chester, New York, Felipe Alberto again shares the stage with Manuel Donayre â€œthe Black Diamondâ€ and Jorge Luis Jasso.
