Make way for the music band from Colombia

India International Centre and Embassy of Colombia are coming up with a concert by Cimarrón, the 2004 Grammy nominated group from Colombia who perform joropo music from the plains of the Orinoco River with a global and contemporary sound. Their powerful scenic force achieves a unique blend of Andalusian, Indigenous American and African roots, with an impetuous and deep 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 outside of Latin America. The particular sound of Cimarron leads a new wave of Colombian joropo music.

Artists like Anaveydober Ordoñez Triana; Carlos Daniel Quimbaya Balcazar; Carlos Rojas Hernandez; Christhian Gabriel Vega Salcedo; Jimmy Andres Gallego Mendez; and Wileiner Rodriguez Buitrago will be performing at the event, which will be held at IIC, on September 4, 6:30 pm.
