Meravelha was formed in 2012 in Boston for the purpose of making medieval music accessible to a wider audience through live performances. Using music, poetry, and movement, the ensemble tells stories that reflect themes illustrated within the songs and cultures of the 11th-15th centuries.  The name “Meravelha,” which translates as “marvel” or “wonder” was taken from the song “Non es meravelha s’eu chan” (It is no wonder that I sing) by Bernard de Ventadorn, a 12th-century troubadour.

Meravelha frequently performs self-produced concerts around the Greater Boston area, and has also appeared at the 2013 IBERICA Early Music Festival, in a fringe concert at the 2013 Boston Early Music Festival, and on the 2014 SoHIP Summer Concert Series.
