Pavel Urkiza & Congrí Ensemble

Cuban guitarist and composer Pavel Urkiza leads his Congrí Ensemble through an evening of skillfully interpreted classic Cuban songs composed between 1851 and 1941. Songs of Cuba 1851-1941 is an exploration of the ancestral connections of music with songs that are part of Latin American popular heritage, learned and transmitted from generation to generation. Presented in a chamber format and accompanied by visuals from the era and historical narration, the pieces are performed on period acoustic instruments such as the romantic guitar, the mutto cornet, baroque flutes, and upright bass.
