…the band that takes the music from the Orinoco River Plains across the world.
About the Event
Prepare to be transported by folk futurists Cimarrón. This Grammy-nominated six-piece joropo band from Colombia delivers an extraordinary blend of Andalusian, Indigenous and African roots music. Led by Ana Veydó, a virtuosic voice that defies the male-centric tradition of the genre, a concert with Cimarrón is a profound experience. The group blends soulful, untamed singing with percussive stomp dancing and rapid fire strings.
Connect to something elemental through instruments like the harp, four stringed cuatro, guitar-like tiple and bandola, maracas, Afro-Peruvian cajón, Brazilian surdo, Afro Colombian tambora, ancient deer-skull whistles from the Orinoco River, the Amazonian Manguaré, and the powerful stomp dancing of Los Llanos (the Colombian and Venezuelan plains).
Cimarrón has toured to 40 countries on five continents. Join us to give them a Wolfpack welcome!
