A welcome return for one of our most popular ensembles! Joglaresa explore the roots of Iberian song - from the motets from the convent of Las Huelgas, and Arab-Andalusian ballads, to Judeo-Spanish romanzas. With medieval and traditional instruments from Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, Joglaresa perform songs, kept alive through centuries of tradition - a colourful and timeless kaleidoscope of Occident and Orient connecting the Occident to the Orient, and the 11th to the 21st century.
