BAROQUE SALSA – A SOUTH-AMERICAN CHRISTMAS
CLASSICAL CHRISTMAS CONCERT
The exuberant Baroque music of Latin America can be described as a fusion of European harmonies and counterpoint with African rhythms and Indigenous style. The rhythmic Christmas repertoire from 17th-century Mexico and Guatemala suggests that people celebrated through joyous song and dance.
