Making their BEMF début, La Donna Musicale and Rumbarroco perform songs and polyphonic settings that highlight “Morenas”—dark-skinned women—in the Ibero-American repertory.

Director Laury Gutiérrez leads us on a musical voyage from the Iberian Renaissance to African-influenced folk traditions in contemporary South America.

The program features settings of “Nigra sum sed Formosa” from the “Song of Songs” and other selections from Spanish songbooks¬—Cancioneros—with endearing depictions of “Morenas”, interspersed with dances.

Selections include music by Manuel Machado, Francisco de Peñalosa, Santiago de Murcia, and others.
