Beautiful Music NOW - Rumbarroco

courtesy of the artists

Today's Beautiful Music features the Latin-Baroque fusion ensemble Rumbarroco, led by viola da gamba player and music scholar Laury Gutierrez. I've Found a New Baby: Baroque Meets Afro-Latin Jazz is an upbeat and toe-tapping performance. The group's mission is to, " ... show the European influence on Afro-American and indigenous music in Latin America, as well as how the fusion of those types of music with European classical music produced new musical genres."

Suzanne Bona is the host and executive producer of Sunday Baroque, a nationally syndicated weekly radio show of Baroque and early music which she originated on WSHU in 1987.
