The first section of this program "Los Cantos del Exilio" is taken from ethnomusicological reconstructions of songs from oral traditions originating among the exiled Jews of Spain.
This program originated in a dramatic presentation, and gives full reign to creativity rather than keeping strictly to established performance norms for music of the period.
