La Compañia

La Compañia, established in 1997, is dedicated to the music of the 16th century with a primary focus on loud winds and percussion, improvisation being a key element of the group's performance.

La Compañia's Melbourne debut received critical acclaim, and since then the group has been active in concert performances, festival appearances and the recording of the early music components for the English feature film Elizabeth.
