Über das Programm

The program presents us with a little-known ancient music of Spain, which on one hand gave the rest of Europe gave a strong impetus for the development of Renaissance polyphony, and on the other hand produced many distinctive rhythms and musical practices that survive today in flamenco and folk music of Latin America.

The singer Beatriz Lafont Murcia revives the ancient tradition of singers who accompany themselves on a musical instrument — a role described by pseudo-mythical terms like minnesinger or bard, or by the utterly contemporary word songwriter. Another guest of the ensemble Plaisirs de Musique is the spirited percussionist with Peruvian roots, Camilo Caller.

This musical evening will be peppered with a tasting of chocolate delicacies.
