We are thrilled to present this rebellious London-based medieval/folk ensemble that pushes – and often transcends – the limits of what is thought of as early music. This programme explores the roots of Iberian song, including motets from the Convent of Las Huelgas, Arab-Andalusian ballads and Judeo-Spanish romanzas. With medieval and traditional instruments from Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, Joglaresa performs songs kept alive through centuries of tradition. Experience a cultural kaleidoscope in which East meets West: not to be missed! Concert followed at 2.30pm by a masterclass with Belinda Sykes, exploring vocal artistry, improvisation and stagecraft, open to public observation.
