Nigra Sum Des Formosa: Morenas en Ibero-America

June 6 @ 10:30 pm EDT

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.

Haciendo su debut en el BEMF (Boston Early Music Festival), La Donna Musicale y Rumbarroco interpretan canciones y arreglos polifónicos que resaltan a las “Morenas” (mujeres de piel oscura) en el repertorio iberoamericano. La directora Laury Gutiérrez nos guía en un viaje musical desde el Renacimiento ibérico hasta las tradiciones folclóricas influenciadas por África en la América del Sur contemporánea. El programa incluye interpretaciones de “Nigra sum sed Formosa” del “Cantar de los Cantares” y otras selecciones de los Cancioneros españoles, con representaciones encantadoras de las “Morenas”, entrelazadas con danzas. Las selecciones incluyen música de Manuel Machado, Francisco de Peñalosa, Santiago de Murcia y otros.
