About Cimarron:

Cimarrón performs joropo music from the Plains of the Orinoco River with a contemporary sound. Their powerful scenic force delivers a unique blend of its Andalusian, Indigenous American and African roots, with a soulful ethnic singing, amazing stomp dance and fierce instrumental virtuosity of strings and percussions. Their music includes four-stringed cuatro, harp, maracas, and also peruvian-flamenco cajón, brazilian surdo, afro-colombian tambora, a stomp dance as a percussion component and tribal indigenous whistles never seen before out of Latin America.

Nominee for two 2019 Independent Music Awards, winners announced June 22 https://cimarroncolombia.com/news/7_cimarron-nominated-independent-music-awards.html
