York Early Music Festival: Ensemble Villancico

Catherine Bott introduces highlights from a concert given by the acclaimed Swedish group, Ensemble Villancico who made their UK debut with a programme of music from which they have earned a global reputation. Musicians and dancers combine to celebrate a time when African rhythms and Indian folk melodies met European Renaissance and Baroque traditions to create distinctive early music from Ecuador.
