Christmas in New Spain

Bell towerLa Compañia, an early music group based in Melbourne, unearths some fine music to celebrate Christmas spiced with the rhythms of the New World. The cultural fusion from the colonisation of the Americas resulted in a truly remarkable and highly spirited music. With angelic voices in Baroque Cathedrals and Chapels throughout New Spain, this Aztec-infused European music with African rhythms is an intoxicating blend. White Hat suggests that if you are tired of the usual round of familiar carols then this will provide a different experience of Christmas music. Tickets avaialble online from the La Compañia website.
