Laberinto en la guitarra
Back by popular demand! After an electrifying BEMF début alongside Jordi Savall and Hespèrion XXI at the 2015 Festival, Mexico’s Tembembe Ensamble Continuo returns with a rousing program tracing the “Labyrinth of the guitar” with Baroque music from Europe to the New World. Embark on a vivid journey through the musical traditions of Spain, Africa, and indigenous America that showcases the evolution and legacy of Baroque music in Mexico’s musical culture.
