Baroque 2000 meets Ensemble Caprice (Canada) for Salsa Baroque, featuring music of Latin America and Spain of the 17th and 18th Centuries.

During the 17th and 18th centuries, the musical dialogue between the Old and the New Worlds produced extraordinary results. This fascinating blend of European polyphony and Latin American traditional music created a new and unique style. The ensemble features Matthias Maute (recorder & traverso); David Jacques (guitar) and Ziya Tabassian (percussion).

Gems from this spectacular musical era will be performed on instruments that were common at the time: flutes and recorders, baroque guitar, cello and various percussion instruments.

Salsa Baroque will take place on November 7, 2021, at 11h30 at the Church of the Mariannhill Monastery.

Tickets R170 at the door. Ample, safe and free parking available. The Monastery Tea Garden will be open for refreshments and light meal

Covid-19 sanitary regulations will apply. Contact: Michel 082 303 5241 or email:
