Bolivia's Baroque music school

A school in a remote part of Bolivia's jungle has a surprising forte - it is a centre for excellence of early Baroque music.

Jonathan Dimbleby hears the orchestra at the school which was set up by Jesuit missionaries nearly 400 years ago.

The school's pupils play early Baroque with both classical and native instruments.

A South American Journey with Jonathan Dimbleby will be on BBC Two at 20:00 on Sunday 18 September 2011 and after on BBC iPlayer.
