Tonos del Sur – Indiana University (Bloomington, IN)
Sarah Cranor, Director
Indiana University’s Tonos del Sur, directed by Sarah Cranor, presents selections of music written in the New World and brought over from Europe, in Spanish, Latin, and Chiquitano. The ensemble explores and presents music from across Latin America, especially of anonymous or lesser-known composers, including in indigenous languages. For this Virtual Festival, we are delighted to share music drawn mostly from our February 2020 concert, including cathedral archives of Bogotá, Lima, Durango, and missions in Bolivia.
