About this Event

Centro Cultural de la Raza is honored to present Grammy-nominated Colombian band Cimarrón to the broader San Diego Community. We invite you to have an intimate concert experience with an amazing and talented Latin American folk group whose only San Diego performance will be hosted at the Centro Cultural de la Raza this Saturday, October 5 with doors opening at 7pm. This event is part of our continuous fundraising efforts for the Centro Cultural de la Raza in preparation of our upcoming 50th anniversary.

Centro Cultural de la Raza presents Cimarrón “Live from Colombia”- performing roots music from the Plains of the Orinoco River with a global and contemporary sound on October 5, 2019 from 7-10pm. Their music weaves Andalusian, Indigenous American and African sounds for their own unique roots feel that has been successfully presented in 35 countries across five continents. Cimarron is currently touring in the U.S. through the summer-fall 2019 and spring 2020 spring to release and present their new album Orinoco. Grammy nominated for Best Traditional World Music Album for Si soy llanero, their most recent album Orinoco, recently nominated for the Latin Grammys for Best Folkloric Album, draws from its Latin American roots and brings a tightly arranged and more explosive rendition of their tropical tradition.

RECORDING ACADEMY (GRAMMY.COM): "The group is leading a new wave of Colombian joropo music with their unique style, mixing Andalusian, indigenous and African roots with acoustic and electronic sounds".

BILLBOARD: “Orinoco is a materialization of time with a wide-ranging sound overflowing with a striking percussive harmony and stringed instruments such as the harp, which serve as the backbone of the album. An amalgam of their Andalusian, indigenous and African roots, the album swerves between the unique flexibility and vigor of Ana Veydó’s vocals, a commanding ibass, the Peruvian cajón with strong flamenco nuances, the ocarina (vessel flute), the Brazilian surdo, and a fierce stomp from the plains”. https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/latin/8511975/viva-friday-playlist-nicky-jam-feid

POP MATTERS: “Orinoco is good both for listeners craving foundational folk music from the album's namesake valley and those who yearn for the fresh and contemporary. It also serves as a phenomenal sales pitch for seeing Cimarrón live as soon as possible. This is a group that deserves to have the energy feedback loop that only an enthusiastic live audience can provide”.

Cimarron was 2005 Grammy-nominated for Best World Music Album and also won the 2012 Independent Music Awards for Best Latin Album with two recordings from the American label Smithsonian Folkways. Also, the show Orinoco was nominated to 2014 Lunas del Auditorio de Mexico Awards for Best Traditional Music Show. This year they earned two nominations to 2019 Independent Music Awards for Best Instrumental Song and Best World Traditional Song (Zumbajam).

Cimarron’s new show delivers a unique blend of our Andalusian, Indigenous American and African roots, with a soulful ethnic singing, amazing foot-stomping dance and fierce instrumental virtuosity of strings and percussion.
