Ana Alcaide in concert

2 July @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

£15 – £20

The Instituto Cervantes Manchester is delighted to present the concert by the Toledan composer, Ana Alcaide, taking us on a musical journey evoking the traditions and cultures of medieval Spain.

Ana Alcaide is one of the most recognized Spanish artists in the folk and world music scene, who researches ancient traditions and cultures.

Ana has played a pioneering role in the introduction and popularization of the nyckelharpa in Spain. Rooted in ancient traditions yet resolutely modern, her compositions deftly blend musical styles from different cultures. From the inspirational backdrop of the city of Toledo, Ana writes and produces her songs, creates new arrangements, and adapts the nyckelharpa to ancient melodies that originated in medieval Spain and have travelled throughout the Mediterranean region. However, her personal and artistic evolution has led her to conquer new creative fields in recent years.

In 2022 she released RITUAL, her sixth CD. This new album is an ambitious project with musicians from Iran, USA and Spain. A mystical journey, a hymn to the power of connection through the act of daily rituals. It was born from her encounter with the Iranian singer Reza Shayesteh and Persian poetry.
