Music and Musicians in Spanish Latin America 1500-1800
This program traces and reflects upon a variety of experiences of music making in Latin America during the Spanish Colonial period (1500-1800). The music performed will include pieces from the Bolivian Missions (Anonymous), popular (at the time) and imported pieces from Europe (Zipoli, de Murcia), as well as vocal music and villancicos from Latin American composers (Pérez de Bocanegra, Céspedes, Fernandes, Sumaya). Our aim is to show how musicians made a life working in the complex contexts of displacement and confinement within colonial society.
