Musical Encounters in the Iberian Colonies

Musical Encounters in the Iberian Colonies

Presented by Mission San Luis at Mission San Luis

Grupo Jaraguá, FSU Early Music Ensembles, Raines Ensemble, and FSU Flute Program will explore the colonial music-cultures of Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, and Brazil. The new world colonies of Spain and Portugal were sites of complex cultural and musical encounter where Spanish, Aztec, Quechua, Tupi, Aymara, West African, and Portuguese musical traditions blended into new forms of sacred and secular music.

From the regional musical traditions of northeastern Brazil, to the lyrical polyphony of Catholic liturgical music from Bolivia, to the popular dance rhythms of the xacara and cumbé, join us for a musical exploration of the rich textures, harmonies, and rhythms of the colonial music-cultures of Central and South America


Part of the 2019-2020 Series on Colonial Sounds: The Influence of Native and Spanish Music on America.

Don’t miss the last presentation in the series on Thursday, April 2, a film entitled, “RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World”  — The story of how Native American music influenced most realms of American music
