Colombia’s Grammy-nominated Cimarrón ensemble is composed of masters of the joropo llanero cowboy tradition - festive and joyous dance music that is practiced along the cattle-rearing plains shared by Colombia and Venezuela. The most accomplished llanera group in Colombia, Cimarrón has explored and experimented with its rich heritage while retaining the essence of the tradition. It has performed for over 20 years, including acclaimed appearances at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, and recorded the Smithsonian album Si Soy Llanero, which was nominated for a Grammy in 2005. It has an ongoing collaborative project with the celebrated Welsh harpist Catrin Finch, a guest on its latest album, and is featured in the Anywhere on the Road compilation by Charlie Gillett. This concert marks its New York debut.
