    Fandangos and the New World

    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 Venezuelan harp, in order to illustrate the similar yet distinctively different sonorities and rhythmic and harmonic connections between the two continents.
