November 3, 2018

Jordi Savall, director

Viola da gamba virtuoso, music scholar, and innovative ensemble leader Jordi Savall leads one of his most expansive and ambitious programs to date bringing together more than two dozen performers from four continents to pay tribute to the contributions of enslaved Africans, and their descendants, to world culture. In The Routes of Slavery, Savall contextualizes the celebratory tone of the music through spoken historical readings intertwined with performances by instrumentalists and vocalists from Mali, Colombia, Catalonia, Europe, Mexico, and Brazil.
