Fandangos, Joropos, and other Folias: from Old Iberia and the New World

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Nov. 1, 2019 - PRLog -- Saturday, November 16, 4PM.
Ryan Concert Hall ~ Smith Center for the Arts
Providence College, Providence, RI

This program features Ibero-American dances and song-dances, including folias, jácaras, and fandangos, from the Renaissance to the present. The music spans from the early Spanish Cancioneros (songbooks) in old Iberia to contemporary folk and popular music from Venezuela and Mexico. Included are dances such as joropo from Venezuela and Colombia and fandanguito from Mexico. Performers will switch from the European viola da gamba and Renaissance guitar to the Venezuelan cuatro and harp, illustrating the similar yet distinctively different sonorities and rhythmic and harmonic connections between the two continents, underlining Africa's influence on them. Music by Anonymous, Ortiz, Soler, Murcia, Machado, Castellanos, and others.

Rumbarroco is an ensemble of acclaimed musicians from different countries and backgrounds, brought together by the desire to make a difference in the world with music. We recreate, preserve, and popularize diverse multicultural aspects of the rhythmic and harmonic interconnectivity that has persisted in and transformed Ibero-American music, from the Medieval period to today. In our performances we combine music from the past and present, including Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical compositions from Europe and America, along with Latin American folkloric and contemporary works, in order to create a vibrant Latin-Baroque musical fusion. Our founder-leader Laury Gutiérrez is a Brandeis University resident scholar and a Radcliffe Institute/Harvard university fellow.
