Cimarrón is considered by Forbes magazine as “the band that takes the music from the Orinoco River Plains across the world”. This Grammy-nominated six-piece (Best Traditional World Music Album) delivers an extraordinary blend of its Andalusian, Indigenous and African roots, with a raw ethnic singing, percussive stomp dancing and rapidfire strings.
Their energetic and infectious music includes 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 all the power of the stomp dance of the rustic parties in the Colombian and Venezuelan Plains of Los Llanos.
Led by the singer Ana Veydó and founded in partnership with the harpist Carlos Cuco Rojas (1954-2020), Cimarrón leads modern joropo with a whole new sound in permanent evolution.
The performances by Cimarrón are funded in part by Pyramid Environmental & Engineering, P.C.
