VIII Centenario de la Batalla de Navas de Tolosa
In the summer of 1212, it takes place the "Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa", an enconter that faces Christian allied army troops formed by Alfonso VIII of Castile, Sancho VII of Navarre and Pedro II of Aragon, with the Caliph An-Nasir Muhammad's significantly superior army. The crusade ends up with the victory of the Christian forces and is carried out with the support of the Archbishop of Toledo, Rodrigo Ximenez and Pope Innocent III.
As a result of this event that now in its eighth centenary we recall, begins the decline of Muslim Spain, giving a new impetus to the definitive Spanish Recapture that end with the expulsion of the Almohad people.
However, the influence of Al-Andalus remains until several centuries later, as is obviously shown in later reigns, such as the one of Alfonso X the Wise. Much of this influence is reflected in the music and Christian instruments.
Musicantes invites us to immerse ourselves in the music of this era, recreating after so many centuries of silence, the music scene in the old Medieval Europe with historical rigor and musicology respect.
