Latino Music Festival presents Ensemble Lipzodes

6:30 PM – 8:00 PM
Harold Washington Library Center


CPL is pleased to partner once again with the Latino Music Festival in 2017! Ensemble Lipzodes is a unique group that combines voice, shawms, dulcians, recorders, and percussion to bring to life the rarely performed music of 16th century Guatemala. This program features colonial music from the Ibarra manuscript, Ecuador. This manuscript is one of the most important findings of colonial Ecuadorian and Latin American musical history. Although currently held in the city of Ibarra, scholars believed the original to be from the city of Quito, most likely in the convent of the Conceptas due to the reference of named nuns mentioned in the manuscript. Lipzodes came across of this manuscript several years ago. Since then, the ensemble has been transcribing the pieces and performing this music taking into consideration the performance practices of the time.

Doors will open at 6pm, seating is first come, first served, 385 max.

This program is presented as part of the 2017-2018 One Book, One Chicago season, exploring the theme "Music: The Beat of Our City" through Greg Kot's book I'll Take You There.
