Most composers in New Spain during the 16th - 18th centuries were originally Spanish, but they drew from many sources for their varied musical styles, including indigenous American and African influences.

With an ensemble of singers, harp and guitar, strings, winds, and percussion, the Folger Consort celebrates the fusion of European, American, and African practices that formed a uniquely Latin American music.
