Ars Longa de La Habana

Gulumbá Gulumbé

The Cuban early music group returns with a program of Latin American Baroque music that explores resonances of Africa in the Americas.

Ars Longa 2018Ars Longa returns to Music of the Americas with a concert that draws on their 2013 CD “Gulumbá Gulumbé. Resonancias de África en el Nuevo Mundo,” which highlights the African presence in Baroque music from the New World. The program, based on research by Guatemalan musicologist Omar Morales Abril, includes several villancicos negros, musical pieces intended primarily for Christmas, as well as poetry, recited by members of the ensemble.
