Como Llora Una Estrella – A Great Venezuelan Tune…

Some time ago I was looking for a new pice for my pupil, so I checked the pieces available on the Mandozine website. One of the pieces that I have tried was Como Llora una Estrella by Antonio Carrillo that can be found here:

Mandozine “Como Llora una Estrella”

The transcription is based on the version by John Reischman from the CD “Travellers” (with Butch Baldassari)

The Ensemble Percujazz from Venezuela – With Bandola and…

Today I have searched for new videos from Venezuela with bandola llanera or cuatro – and during this search I have found some videos of an ensemble named Percujazz.

Percujazz is composed of five young musicians, with the typical venezuelan instruments bandola llanera, cuatro and maracas aswell as violin and electric bass.

The ensemble has first met during the Barquisimeto International Jazz Festival where important jazz musicians played, including the famous Alexis Cardenas on violin.

They have created their own style from venezoelan music, lantin american music and jazz – a great mix of rhythms ond styles.

  • Roberto Perez de Guanare, Bandola Llanera.
  • Argenis Corvo, E-Bass
  • Erickson Barquisimeto Escalona, Violine
  • Rafael Marchan, Cuatro
  • Sergio Escobar Maracas, Percussion
