5/26      Exiles and Émigrés

Displacement due to political causes has been sadly common throughout history. By force or by choice, composers (and other artists) have abandoned their homeland to become exiles or migrants in a different country. Fiesta! examines the cases of Manuel de Falla’s exile in Argentina, Paul Bowles’ lifelong affair with Spain and Latin America, and Conlon Nancarrow becoming an American-Mexican composer.
