In this post I have compiled several playlists with music for mandolin and other stringed instruments from Venezuela.
I have a page on my website mandoisland about the mandolin and other interesting information about the music in Venzuela.

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
