Cimarrón is considered by Forbes magazine as "the band that takes the music from the Orinoco River Plains across the world". This Grammy-nominated six-piece (Best Traditional World Music Album) delivers an extraordinary blend of its Andalusian, Indigenous and African roots, with a raw ethnic singing, percussive stomp dancing and rapidfire strings. Around 40 countries of 5 continents have ovationated Cimarrón show in main folk and global music festivals such as Mawazine Festival in Morocco, Malaysia Rainforest World Music Festival, Switzerland Paléo Festival, Rajasthan International Folk Festival, Rudolstadt Festival, Globaltica Festival, Abu Dhabi Culture & Heritage Festival, Førde International Folk Music Festival, Flamenco Biennale Nederland, Newport Folk Festival, San Francisco International Arts Festival and worldwide renowned performing art centers such as Japan Musashino Concert Hall and China National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing. Their energetic and infectious music includes harp, four-stringed cuatro, guitar-like tiple and bandola, maracas, Afro-Peruvian cajón, Brazilian surdo, Afro Colombian tambora, ancient deer-skull whistles from the Orinoco River, the Amazonian Manguaré and all the power of the stomp dance of the rustic parties in Los Llanos (Colombian and Venezuelan Plains).
