WHY: The Spanish baroque ensemble La Folía was founded in 1977 in Madrid with the aim of interpreting the musical repertoire of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries using period instruments. The group brings its talents to New Orleans for a one-night-only concert of early works hearkening back to the age of European discovery, exploration and colonization of North America.

Established by the Bouligny Foundation, the Bouligny Lecture Series examines Louisiana under Spanish rule and honors Francisco Bouligny, an important military and political figure in Spanish Louisiana. This year's event is presented by THNOC and Acción Cultual Española with support from the Consulate General of Spain - Houston, Gobierno de España and Spain: Arts & Culture.
