Cuban early-music group to make Miami debut

Fri Oct 21, 2016 at 9:00 pm

By Lawrence Budmen


The Miami Bach Society will present Ars Longa, a vocal and period-instrument ensemble from Cuba, as part of the 2017 Tropical Baroque Festival.

The performance will mark the first appearance in South Florida of classical artists from Cuba since the resumption of diplomatic relations between the United States and the Caribbean island nation in 2014. Although Ars Longa has appeared in Europe and made several recordings, the concert will be part of the group’s first American tour.

Co-sponsored by Florida International University, the performance will take place on March 1, 2017 at the FIU Wertheim Concert Hall. The ensemble’s touring program “Gulumbá Gulumbé” is devoted to the influences on Caribbean music and culture of the African slaves who were brought by the Spanish and Portuguese to work in the fields, workshops and mines on both sides of the Atlantic.

The Tropical Baroque Festival (February 24-March 5) will also feature performances by the Israeli vocal ensemble Profeti della Quinta, the string orchestra Acronym and a return appearance by the Venice Baroque Orchestra at venues in Coral Gables and Miami Beach.
