PRE-SHOW DINNER at 1887 BISTRO (reservations for the pre-show dinner are sold out)

…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!


Before Cimarrón heats up the stage, join us in NC State’s 1887 Bistro for an elegant three-course prix fixe meal inspired by the cuisine of Colombia. Dinner is $45.95 per person and includes two glasses of wine or beer. Doors open at 5:00pm. Reservations required. Reserve online or at the box office when you buy your concert ticket.

Reservations for the pre-show dinner before Cimarrón are sold out.
