Jordi Savall and The Routes of Slavery return to the US

Music.  USA, 06/11/2018

Early music interpreter Jordi Savall and artists representing Europe, Africa, and the Americas explore the music through which enslaved peoples forged a sense of community, preserved their own humanity, and found a way to endure in the face of unspeakable bondage. Savall and his collaborators honor their journeys through the incredible music legacy they left in this presentation.




This unique performance explores the history and music from the three continents involved in the trade in African slaves and their exploitation in the New World. They are brought together through the early music of the colonial period, the musical traditions of Mali, and the oral traditions of the descendants of slaves in Madagascar, Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico. From the musical traditions of medieval Europe to negro spirituals, Savall sheds light on one of human history’s most painful chapters.
