For eight centuries the blending of Muslim, Christian, and Jewish cultures left its mark on Spanish music. The musical influences that came together to produce flamenco and found their way into Latin American music were first expressed in pilgrim songs from Santiago da Compostella, the music of Sephardic Jews, and multi-voice works hauntingly celebrating the fall of Muslim Spain. With guitarist Adam Cockerham, we also explore music of the Spanish New World.
