Tembembe Ensamble Continuo explores the similarities between the instruments and the practices of each of these traditions, presenting all aspects of performance including music, song, and dance that bring alive the festive spirits of both the Hispanic fandango of the 17th century and contemporary traditional fandango. The founding members of Tembembe—Enrique Barona, Eloy Cruz, and Leopoldo Novoa—are all graduates of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and currently teach there, as well as at the Centro Ollin Yoliztli (Mexico City). They most recently performed alongside Jordi Savall at the 2015 Boston Early Music Festival.
