LA DONNA MUSICALE is a non-profit research, education, and performance organization devoted to the discovery, preservation, and

promotion of music by both early and modern women composers. The organization’s internationally acclaimed ensemble uses period instruments and historically informed performance practice in its programs in the United States and abroad.

The mission of La Donna’s branch organization RUMBARROCO is to recreate, preserve, and popularize the vital rhythms and harmonies of the past that traveled from the Iberian Peninsula to the Americas and vice versa. Rumbarroco’s Latin-Baroque Fusion ensemble uses period, folk, and contemporary popular instruments and performance practices. Rumbarroco explores the musical and cultural similarities and distinctions among Europeans, Africans, and Amerindians as experienced through Latin-American music in order to unite today’s diverse communities, empower youth, and raise funds for humanitarian projects in Latin America.
