art9613


Istanpitta, a United States medieval music ensemble, performs Saturday, Feb. 4, in Rammelkamp Chapel at Illinois College. Their concert, “Exiled,” explores the expulsion of the Jewish race from Medieval Spain and their travels to the Middle East. Songs, instrumentals and stories highlight the cultural fusion of Western and Eastern influences in Spain. The ensemble consists of three to five musicians playing a variety of period instruments including the oud, lute, saz, shawms, transverse flutes, krummhorns, vielles, Medieval harp, bagpipes and more. The group has performed at festivals, colleges and other events all across America since its formation in 1994.
