Songs from the streets of Trujillo, Peru
Without the help of an 18th century Spanish bishop, Música Temprana would never have performed this music…

Música Temprana is preparing a new CD with songs from the streets of 18th Century Peru. We have started raising funds through the Dutch crowd funding platform ‘Voordekunst.nl’. Since this is in Dutch language only, we present a summary in English:
In the late 18th century the Spanish bishop Martínez Compañón documented day-to-day life in Trujillo, an important colonial post in Peru. It took nine volumes, which he illustrated with lively watercolour paintings.
The bishop also noted down 20 pieces of music. Bailes: all kinds of dance music. Tonadas: songs for one voice accompanied by guitar. Cachuas: music for the often exuberant celebrations. The aquarelles show the instruments used and musicians playing, so that we know exactly on which instruments this music was played two centuries ago.
