“Amid the usual parade of famous, anonymous maestros, here, finally, was a man worth celebrating,” the New Yorker once wrote of Jordi Savall. Now the distinguished Catalan composer, viola da gambist, and musical historian gathers a global
array of dancers, singers, and musicians to pay homage to the music of Europe, Africa, and the Americas in a stunning exploration of humanity, spiritual resistance, and community in the face of slavery’s unimaginable cruelty.

Sponsored by UNESCO, this massive cross-cultural musical reconciliation features some two dozen instrumentalists and vocalists from Mali, Colombia, Mexico, Brazil and Venezuela. 

PRE-SHOW TALK: Join associate professor of classics Grant Parker and professor of history James Campbell for a discussion at 3:15PM.
