Catrin Finch & CimarrĂ³n 2020 UK Tour

20 January 2020 - 6 February 2020Venues around England and Wales
United Kingdom

(Not ILAMS events, but one we highly recommend!)

Back in 2007 Catrin Finch met with the six-piece Colombian joropo band Cimarrón and embarked on an exhilarating tour of Wales, following which a live album was released entitled Yn Byw. The collaboration was repeated in 2009 and 2010. Ten years later, Catrin and Cimarrón meet again to tour the UK. Catrin Finch is one of the world’s leading harp players, whose career has featured both solo performances with the world’s top orchestras, and collaborations with some of the leading world music artists, including Toumani Diabate and Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita. The 6-piece Grammy-nominated Cimarrón perform joropo dance music from the cattle-rearing plains of the Orinoco, rooted in a deep tradition defined by the mestizo mixed heritage of African, Spanish and indigenous cultures. Led by harpist and composer Carlos Cuco Rojas, Cimarrón make wild, untamed music that preserves the spirit of freedom found in one of the world’s most untouched regions. Fast-paced and powerful, this is music with impetuous singing, amazing stomp dancing and fierce instrumental virtuosity of strings and percussion.

However, it is with sadness that we have learned of the sudden passing of Carlos Cuco Rojas. On her website, Catrin Finch, has stated their intention to continue with the tour, as a mark of respect. Updated 20/1/20
