“Desvíos a Santiago” is a musical pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, inspired by Cees Nooteboom’s book ‘’Roads to Santiago’’. Many of the songs of this program were and are still sung today on the multiple pilgrim tracks that lead from all over Europe to the mythical cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

The program features pieces ranging from the 13th to 20th century, with medieval Spanish Cantigas (Martín Codax, Alfonso X the Wise, Llibre Vermell de Montserrat), Renaissance and Early Baroque tunes from Juan del Encina and Étienne Moulinié, and melodies from the last century by Galician and Basque composers.

Between these pilgrim songs Taracea has interwoven instrumental pieces from their album “Akoé”, like Dowland´s “Come again”, Isaac´s “Innsbruck, ich muss Dich lassen” and the traditional “Cuchilleros” from 18th century Madrid.
