The Rough Guide To Venezuela

Various

RGNET1115CD

While dominated, as with many Latin American countries, by the ever-popular salsa, merengue and pop, Venezuelan music is also comprised of the rich folk traditions of llanera, Afro-Venezuelan music, parranda and others. With a diverse landscape including the Andes, the Amazon jungle and a Caribbean coastline, the country has hundreds of unique musical styles, with each village having their own instruments and rhythms. Including tracks from the country's internationally famous salsa artist Oscar D'Leon, this album provides a tantalising introduction to the sounds of Venezuela.
