THE SONG OF THE SYBIL
with Carmen Jaime, Hernán Livolsi, Biyi Amez and Xavi Villanueva
A very special night and an intimate look at an old Majorcan tradition. The Song of the Sybil is presented in Mallorca’s churches on Christmas Eve. Approximate length, 40 minutes.
Carmen Jaime brings us an informative and innovative presentation of the Majorcan Song of the Sibyl, outside its usual liturgical setting, emphasizing the great artistic value and tremendous strength of this piece of music that was declared a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO on November 16, 2010.
Xavi Villanueva in his introduction provides the historical context of this song, which dates back to the fourth century and whose peculiarities make it a unique sociocultural phenomenon.
Carmen Jaime’s version of this chant is intrinsically traditional, but imbued with a spirit of evolution. The deep sounds of Hernán Livolsi’s didgeridoo echo the cataclysms described in the song, while Biyi Amez creates mysterious and ethereal sounds on the Theremin.
There will be bar and food service from 7:30 p.m. Tonight our invited cook will spoil us with various culinary delicacies with the taste of the Mediterranean.
