Cimarron - Concert
Winner of the iTunes Rewind 2011 Traditional World Album of the Year award, Smithsonian Folkways recording artist Cimarrón is the most accomplished llanera group in Colombia, South America. They play the festive dance music called jorpo, a fierce display of melodies played on harp, bandola and cuatro. Performing around the world for over twenty years, they are immersed in the sounds of ‘los llanos’ (the plains); they seek to experiment with their rich heritage while retaining the essence of the tradition. Concert at 7pm. For tickets or additional information, visit the website link or call (800) 836-0717 or (231) 995-1553.
