The Vedado Ensemble takes various forms, assembling singers and musicians according to the repertoire but always under the direction of the viola da gamba player Ronald Martin Alonso. The ensemble specialises in music from the baroque period as well as in contemporary music played on baroque instruments. 

 

Its first project in 2011 centered on the work of the Cuban composer Esteban Salas, kapellmeister at Santiago de Cuba Cathedral from 1764 until his death in 1803. Several projects highlighting the viola da gamba followed and gave rise to two recordings: « À la Marésienne » (K617 label) and « Les Folies Humaines », both of works by the composer Marin Marais.

 

The Ensemble Vedado is a frequent guest at festivals in France including Les Grands Concerts in Lyon, the Festival Baroque du Mont-Blanc, the Festival Format Raisins, Sinfonia in Périgord, the Journées musicales d’Automne in Souvigny and Les Méridiennes in Tours, as well as abroad: Festival du Museo de la Citta, Cremona (Italy), Midi-Minimes, Brussels (Belgium), Festival de música antigua Esteban Salas, Havana (Cuba), Festival de musica da camara, Almaty (Kazakhstan), Teatro Nacional, Quito (Ecuador), Festival de música Antigua, Lima (Peru). 

 

The ensemble also performs regularly on French radio in programmes produced by Gaëlle Le Gallic, Xavier Carrère, Clément Rochefort and Edouard Fouré Caul-Futy.
