The eight decades of the presence of Jesuit missionaries among the Chiquitos (1691-1767) and the Moxenos (1680-1767), in the Amazonian forest of eastern Bolivia saw a rapid development of the musical training of the indigenous population. An impressive collection of musical manuscripts had been produced by the composers and copyists of the ancient missions. This concert gives an exquisite overview of that wonderful music.

For a small fee you can meet the artists after the concert whilst having a drink and some appetisers.
