With a wild, powerful and unbridled sound, CimarrÃƒÂ³n lives up to the meaning of its name, untamed. The Grammy-nominated Colombian ensemble creates a fiery kind of music called mÃƒÂºsica llanera and the fast-paced, triple-meter dance music joropo, played on harp, bandola and cuatro accompanied by bass, cajÃƒÂ³n and maracas. The seven-piece all-star team of instrumentalists and singers, led by harpist and composer Carlos Rojas, astonishes audiences with its melodic and rhythmic virtuosity, percussive drive and sabor colombiano, Colombian flavor.
