Fandangos & the New World: Concert and Convers...

Presented by La Donna Musicale - RUMBARROCO at Online/Virtual Space

This program features Ibero-American dances and song-dances, including folias, jácaras, and fandangos, from the Renaissance to the present. The music spans the early Spanish Cancioneros (songbooks) in old Iberia to contemporary folk and popular music from Venezuela and Mexico.

We feature dances such as the joropo from Venezuela and Colombia and the Fandango Jarocho from Mexico. Performers will switch from the European viola da gamba and Renaissance guitar to the Venezuelan cuatro and harp, to illustrate the similar yet distinct sonorities and rhythmic and harmonic connections between Europe and the Americas, as well as the African and Afro-American connections.

Professor Anna Lombardia from the University of Salamanca, Spain and dance scholar Meira Goldberg will enlighten us on the topic of Ibero-American dances, their origins and developments, arriving at the 18th-century Fandango. The public is invited to submit questions at

Music by Anonymous, Santiago de Murcia, Gaspar Sanz, Rafael Antonio Castellanos, Domenico Scarlatti and Antonio Soler.
