Jordi Savall's 'Routes of Slavery' Coming to US in Fall 2018

Jordi Savall's multicultural project The Routes of Slavery, a musical homage to the memory of victims of the slave trade, will tour the US in November 2018.

Performances include the Philadelphia premiere at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on November 1st; CalPerformances on the 3rd; Stanford Live on the 4th; Early Music Seattle on the 6th; and Texas Performing Arts on the 8th. 

Sponsored by UNESCO, The Routes of Slavery is a musical reconciliation that is founded on equality, harmony and reciprocal inspiration, constituting the commemoration of a tragic and shameful chapter in the history of mankind. A vast historical and musical fresco, which throws light on the West’s attitude towards Africans in Latin America, the United States and Europe, as well as its indifference towards that 'forgotten' continent of Africa. But it is also a joyful celebration of hearts and spirits united through music and dance, offering us all a vital source of survival, a refuge of peace, consolation and hope.
