Jordi Savall

Routes of Slavery

Presented in Partnership with Seattle Symphony

In a monumental project spanning centuries and featuring musicians from Africa, Europe, and the Americas, early music expert Jordi Savall leads a singular experience of music, dance, and spoken word tracing the story of the African diaspora in the Old and New Worlds.


“It’s both a timely reminder of our ignoble instinct to subjugate and a moving gesture of reconciliation.” -The Sunday Times
