Cantiga's unique, magical music has delighted visitors to Renaissance Festivals across North America for close to thirty years. In the summer of 2023, Cantiga is returning to Hammond! Listeners will be delighted by the freedom, virtuosity, life and love that Cantiga infuses into its ancient melodies and rhythms.
The word CANTIGA means 'song' in the language of Alfonso the Wise, the legendary 13th Century Spanish "King of the Three Religions" whose royal court was a haven for Christian, Muslim, and Jewish musicians. Following in their tradition, the members of Cantiga are dedicated to the inclusive spirit of musical improvisation that has flourished among musicians in cultural crossroads throughout history and continues to be celebrated in today's diverse Global musical village.
