Follow Piffaro from Spain to the New World in the 17th century and hear a wild array of secular songs, sacred motets, dances and instrumental fantasias are all performed on Piffaro's amazing collection of period instruments. This album is an all-instrumental homage to the music of Spain that was brought from the Old World, interspersed with music that was developed in the New World and influenced by the rich native cultures that the Spaniards encountered. It was inspired by Piffaro's own trip to South America in May of 2010, where they performed at Bolivia's International Festival of Renaissance and Baroque Music.

Reviews

"The sound is bright and lively...This is an album that should be attractive to fans of early music and it makes an excellent, friendly introduction to music of the era for other listeners willing to dip into new territory."
- AllMusic
