The Winner’s Circle Presents:
At Long Island's #1 Club for Latin Music!
Ernesto "Chico" Alvarez Peraza (otherwise known to the Latin music world as Chico Alvarez) is a Cuban American artist of Latin American music who has been performing as a singer throughout the New York City tri-state area for the last four decades. He currently performs with the Afro-Cuban band Mafimba and is also the host of a Latin jazz radio show on Sunday afternoons at WBAI Pacifica Radio (99.5 FM) called the New World Gallery. Alvarez is also a graphic artist and has designed album covers for various Latin music labels over the years. He was born in New York City but grew up in Cuba and currently lives in the state of New Jersey. Alvarez is also the recipient of an award from the National Federation of Community Broadcasters and has interviewed famous artists such as Dizzy Gillespie and Tito Puente.
“Chico Alvarez is a time-traveler. His voice rises as if from old wax records. His diction and intonation have the sweet quality of old Cuban Soneros. On the other hand, the band is slammin' very much in the here and now.”
