A rare combination of music from two golden ages. Throughout 17th-century Europe, composers explored the extremes of human life: love, sorrow, ecstasy and faith thrillingly painted in sweet harmony and stinging dissonance. In the Latin America of the 20th century, songwriters gave voice to a continent emerging from years of suppression into the blinding light. These songs are the musical cousins of the irresistibly vivid novels of Gabriel García Márquez, with a comparable combination of lyrical magic, cultural resonance, and exquisitely poetic imagery.
