Cimarron

Cimarrón are from the cattle rearing, Llanos Orientales region of Colombia. They bring a fierce display of rippling melodies and powerful rhythms, combining Andalusian, Indigenous Indian and African roots. Led by harpist Carlos Rojas, the musicians explore and experiment with their rich heritage while retaining the essence of the tradition. A powerful performance for the opening night of the Festival in a cabaret setting.

At 6:00pm Cimarrón’s musical director and harpist Carlos Rojas leads an informative presentation about the history of traditional music from the Llanos Orientales region of Colombia.
