This week we are playing Holiday and ceremonial music that is played throughout Spain, and Latin America. The two mainstays of today’s show are Works from two Argentinian artists: Ariel Ramirez and his Misa Criolla (Creole Mass) and the Argentinian Rock Group Vox Dei (Voice of God) with a conceptual work from 1971 titled “La Biblia”, The bible. In between we are going to play music from Spain and Latin America.
The Misa Criolla is “widely regarded as a stunning artistic achievement, that combined Spanish text with indigenous instruments and rhythms”.
The second pillar of our show is La Biblia ; Spanish for “The Bible”) is the second studio album by the Argentinian band Vox Dei, released as a double album on 1971. It is considered a milestone of the emerging Argentinian rock, as well as one of the first rock operas and conceptual albums of rock en español, La Biblia centers on the Bible’s narrative, starting from Genesis and concluding with the Cristo muerte y Resurreccion (Christ death and resurrection)
