Jordi Savall: The Routes of Slavery
November 8, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
Celebrated early music interpreter and performer Jordi Savall returns to TPA with the Austin premiere of his new multicultural program, The Routes of Slavery. This unique performance explores the history and music from the three continents involved in the trade in African slaves and their exploitation in the New World.
Performed by Savall and a large ensemble of guest performers, this ‘musical memoir’ is accompanied with historical texts on slavery, beginning with the early chronicles of 1444 and concluding with texts written by Nobel Peace Prize-winner Martin Luther King, Jr. shortly before his assassination in 1968.
