What would taking a stroll through 12th century Cordoba sound like? Cantigas musically transports you back in time to the metropolis of the early Middle Ages. Sway to the selection of Marian songs from Cantigas de Santa Maria and inherited Arabo-Andalusian works that are still played and sung in Maghreb to this day.

The Cantigas were collected at the behest of King Alfonso X, also known as 'King of the Three Religions,' at a time when Christians, Jews and Muslims peacefully coexisted. You can hear their mutual influences in the rhythmic structures of songs, among other things. To make this musical journey faithful to its zeitgeist, the Amsterdam Andalusisch Orkest exclusively play the same instruments that were used in the twelfth century.
