Folias, Antiguas & Criollas: From the Ancient to the New World
The universally celebrated Jordi Savall and Hespèrion XXI combine forces with the Mexican folklore ensemble, Tembembe Ensamble Continuo, to kick off the Festival Concert Week with an intoxicating program of music inspired by the “discovery” of the New World. An ensemble of eight exceptional musicians join Savall as he explores the connections and interactions between the disparate musical traditions of the colonials to the creole, African to indigenous. This opening concert of revelatory music features works by Diego Ortiz and Pedro Guerrero, and colonial and folk music from all over South America.
