Vidala focuses on Latin America during the years of colonization, where in the 16th century three different cultures start intermingling: Natives, Spanish conquistadors and African slaves. From Mexico to Argentina there is an explosion of new dances with exciting names like Sarabanda, Zamacueca, Pasacalle and Folia. The recording features instrumental arrangements of traditional melodies and songs from Latin America, performed by Argentinian tenor Francisco Brito, as well as works by Italian composers such as Alessandro Piccinini, Tarquinio Merula, Biagio Marini and Antonio Vivaldi. Since its formation in 1999, the Bach Consort Vienna with musical director Ruben Dubrovsky, are widely renowned for their authentic performance practice and with Vidala take us on a journey through time to the roots of European Baroque.
