Grammy Awards Best World Music Album Nominee
Cimarrón performs joropo music from the Plains of the Orinoco River with a global and contemporary sound. Their powerful scenic force achieves a unique blend of its 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 out of Latin America.
The particular sound of Cimarrón leads a new wave of Colombian joropo music. They are ready to embrace their foolish side and bring their incredible music to Church Street.
Check them out on stage and on the street! They’ll be on the Ben & Jerry’s Top Block Stage Friday at 7:20 p.m. as part of A Foolish Frolic and on the street at the Magic Hat Pitch on Saturday at 1 p.m.
Street Performers will be up & down the Church Street Marketplace Friday, noon-10 p.m.; Saturday, 11-10 p.m.; & Sunday, 11-6 p.m.
