La canción de la semana #178

...is Quitapesares by Colombian joropo band Cimarrón.
Hailing from the vast Orinoco plains which stretch from Colombia into Venezuela, joropo is a fast traditional rhythm played on harp, bandola and cuatro accompanied by bass, cajon and maracas. Cimarrón fire up flawless virtuosity with a heart-stopping sense of drama.


Cimarrón plays at WOMAD Charlton Park on 24 July. For more unusual and beautiful music, check out Catrin Finch and Cimarrón.
