Jordi Savall – viols / director

Hespèrion XXI
Tembembe Ensamble Continuo

Programme Note

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Jordi Savall’s pioneering early music ensemble, founded as Hespèrion XX (before acquiring an extra numeral to its name with the turn of the present century).

The Catalan viol player, conductor and composer and his close-knit group have ventured across cultural boundaries to discover the common musical connections that once united peoples from different ethnic and religious backgrounds.

Joined by Mexican musicians from Tembembe Ensamble Continuo, these artists come together to seek out, recreate, and convey what intimately connects Baroque music with traditional music, with an intoxicating blend of Hispanic and Creole elements influenced by indigenous and African traditions.
