Inspired by the exhibition Cristóbal de Villalpando; Mexican Painter of the Baroque, on view at The Met Fifth Avenue, the music of Tembembe illustrates an explosive 17th-century moment when the Baroque sensibilities and instrumentation dominant in Europe collided with New World colors and rhythms. Tembembe's performances are a fascinating hybrid of European Baroque and indigenous Mexican and Latin American sounds.
