SOUNDS OF COMING AND GOING
(SONES DE IDA Y VUELTA)
Three Castillian musicians and two Peruvians mixing our music of Hispanic roots with the Afro-Peruvian and Andean rhythms and melodies, using instruments of these cultures like the sanabrese bagpipes, Arab lute, mandola, various types of guitar, bhendir, accordion, sikkus, kena, cajon, quijada, and many other percussion instruments, in addition to four well-polished voices. The title of our program is “Sounds of Coming and Going,” which represents the Iberian baggage that we Spaniards took to Peru and that we bring back reelaborated by the different Ibero-American musical influences, above all the Peruvian and especially the black, that of African slaves, to mix again with the Iberian musical tradition in a festive and participatory concert.
Old Iberian Romances that the Spanish Jews took with them after their expulsion by the Catholic Monarchs at the end of the 15th century and that have been conserved outside of their Sepharad (Spain) with the best freshness of the same Spanish. Also liturgical and semiliturgical themes appear sung in Jewish and in haketia (language spoken in the Balkans and in Morroco, repectively). Between each song I go shelling the notes of the history of the Sephardic Jews, since their expulsion until today. Also there are couplets with refrains and songs that are attractive to the ear in which the public can join in easily.

ROMANCES OF KNIGHTS AND MAIDENS
Iberian romances interpreted since the Medieval times with the hurdy-gurdy, an instrument of the old minstrels and the blind vendors of couplets of long ago. The guitar and the mandola complete the sonoric spectrum accompanying a deep pitched voice. An excellent opportunity for the elderly to remember the old stories that they heard in their infancy and above all so that children can begin to appreciate and learn them because they are a fundamental aspect of their roots.
