Yuri Juárez Yllescas (Lima-Peru 1973):
A guitarist, arranger, and composer began his career in 1996 as a guitarist for various groups of Afro-Peruvian music, folk, and fusion.
His musical training ranges from formal studies at New York University with Gil Goldstein, John Scofield, and Peter Bernstein and also with the Peruvian masters of the guitar such as Pepe Torres, Alvaro Lagos, Jorge Madueño and more “street” experience in Afro-Peruvian peñas.
In 2000, Yuri becomes involved with Latin-American folk music for the first time with the group Sin Líneas en el Mapa. In 2004 he starts exploring the Afro-Peruvian Jazz current with Edward Perez, Rafael “Fusa” Miranda, and Juan Medrano Cotito.
In November of 2008, Yuri released his first album. Afroperuano with its own repertoire and important composers Chabuca Granda, Carlos Hayre, and Chucho Valdes, achieving great success in domestic and international criticism.
In December of 2009, he moved to New York City and gets the Latin Jazz Corner Awards in the categories of Best Afroperuvian Jazz Album and Best Latin Jazz Guitarist debut for his “Afroperuano”.
