Early Music @ 1 - Wednesday 8th April
Today’s video features some more beautiful singing by Ariane Rees, this time accompanied by frame drum. The two songs you hear are Sephardic songs from medieval Spain where this type of vocal music has its roots. The first one is called “Esta montaña d'enfrente”, the second song is called “Hija Mia” and Ariane will tell you more about the songs in the video! If you'd like to find out more about medieval percussion instruments, why not have a look at our collection of frame drums and medieval drums!
