Los Llanos Orientales are vast plains that stretch from Colombia into Venezuela. The mestizo people that inhabit these savannahs on the great Orinoco river are descendents of Spanish settlers, African slaves and Indigenous Indians. This is cattle rearing country, where music accompanies the daily working tasks such as milking and cattle drives. Most striking is the festive dance music called joropo, a fiercely virtuoso display of rippling melodies. The joropo's syncopated drive and top-of-the-lungs singing proclaim a cattle-herding mestizo people proud of their homeland. Percussive harp techniques and fast-picking bandola guitar rise upon a bedrock rhythm of cuatro guitar, bass, and maracas to produce the signature plains sound.

Cimarrón is the most accomplished llanera group in Colombia. A seven piece led by harpist and composer Carlos Rojas, they have been working for over twenty years and have performed the world over. These musicians are immersed in the sounds of "los llanos"; they seek to explore and experiment with their rich heritage while retaining the essence of the tradition.

"Incredible virtuosity on their harp, bandolas, and percussion backed heart-felt singing evoking the cattle ranches and vast landscapes of their homeland, and a memorable showcase that deservedly finished with a standing ovation, ended with an energetic display of traditional dancing." -Mondomix
