Spanish folk songs for voice and guitar.

Perhaps Spain’s most distinguished composer of the 20th Century, Manuel De Falla and his music have been hailed as giving voice to the very soul of Spain. In this first instalment of Luminescence Chamber Singers’ SoloSeries, mezzo-soprano AJ America and guitarist Minh Le Hoang perform De Falla’s most famous cycle of Spanish folk songs, as well as songs by Falla’s life-long friend, Spanish poet Frederico Garcia Lorca.

Canciones Popilares will run for approximately 1 hour.
