From Latin to Quechua: Songs with Harp


Soprano Rocío de Frutos is joined by harpist Manuel Vilas through a musical journey of ancient Peru. They explore the origin of Catholic hymns in Cuzco and other Quechua-speaking areas, beginning in the 16th century with Latin songs introduced by the Spanish, and culminating in the 19th century, with the explosion of the Catholic devotional songs in Quechua.

The New Yorker featured the concert in the June 5 edition of the magazine. Read the article here.
