Houston Early Music and Da Camera of Houston present Jordi Savall in

The Route to the New World: Spain to Mexico

The incomparable early music superstar Jordi Savall makes his long-awaited Houston debut. With La Capella Reial and Hespèrion XXI, Savall joins together with the Ensemble Tembembe of Mexico for this unique celebration of mixed musical traditions.  Folk and baroque meet in this dialogue between Old Spain, Mexican Baroque and the living Husteca and Jarocho traditions, reflecting African, Spanish and native influences on indigenous Mexican music. With a message of mutual understanding and cultural exchange, Savall brings to life this rich musical heritage with originality and passion.

Recognized as one of the most important performers of ancient music, Jordi Savall is easily one of the most multifaceted music personalities of his generation: viol player, conductor, and creator of an unmistakable style. His concerts, pedagogical and research activities place him among the main architects of the present process of revaluation and revival of historical music. With over 100 recordings to his credit, Savall is instrumental in restoring an essential repertoire.
