Duo Corvi and Friends

September 29, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Bel ami, Alamanda

Return of the international award-winning ensemble, Duo Corvi, to the EMSI stage, with Occitan and Galician music from the 13th Century.

The trobairitz, like their male troubadour counterparts, were noble poet-musicians who wrote and performed within Occitan court life during the late 12th and 13th centuries. In contrast to the trobairitz, the joglar were musicians who came from outside a noble background. Early Galician joglar forms include the cantiga de amigo (‘friend song’), a type of lyric poetry rooted in female-voiced song. Duo Corvi is delighted to present this repertoire in Bel ami, Alamanda in collaboration with their brilliant friends and guest musicians Ben, Doug, and Arian. Enjoy their re-imagining of this very early music.

Performers:
Julie Ryning, voice
Katelyn Clark, orgnetto
Ben Grossman, vielle à roue (hurdy gurdy)
Douglas Hensley, gittern & vihuela
Arian Aminalroaya, percussion
