Description

Congofonia is inspired in the Caribbean musical expressions of the Holy Spirit Brotherhood Congos of Villa Mella, a bucolic African community in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Their music, known as Congo, is based on simple ostinato structures played with rustic percussion instruments accompanying a repetitive plane chant. The orchestration also exhibits sonorities from the Gagá (Dominican- Haitian music) and the Rará (Haitian).


Congofonía esta inspirada en las expresiones musicales caribeñas de la Cofradía del Espíritu Santo de los Congos de Villa Mella, una comunidad Africana y rural en Santo Domingo, Republica Dominicana. Su música, conocida como Congo, se basa en patrones repetitivos de instrumentos de percusión muy rústicos que acompañan un canto llano. La orquestación despliega a su vez sonoridades del Gaga (música Dominico-Haitiana) y Rara (música Haitiana).
