COLOMBIA, 8 musicians

“Thought they were absolutely brilliant. Good for you for putting them together and bringing them over! Everyone said they were one of the very best showcases by a long way so it wasn't just me either! Please LET's GET THEM ON MY PROGRAMME without fail.” Lucy Duran.BBC Radio 3 / “We got a lot of feedback at our stand from other attendees and by far the most talked about/ enjoyed artists were definitely Cimarron, no contest. “ Ian Anderson. Froots blog
“I had the pleasure of seeing Cimarrón’s showcase at WOMEX. It was easily my favorite showcase of WOMEX, and I saw most of the performances. It was flawless! And musically stunning. The North Americans are very much abuzz on this act. And it seems like almost everyone who saw them count them as THE best showcase of WOMEX this year. / My company rock paper scissors, inc. is a publicity firm for “music of global significance.” We have worked with everyone from Mariza to Seu Jorge, from Tinariwen to Max Raabe. I would love to join the Cimarrón promotion team for the USA. Much respect.“ Dmitri Vietze. Rock Paper Scissors, inc.
“But there was much more to come and great moments to share with Colombian Cimarrón and the joropo music from the immense plains of Los Llanos Orientales that cross the border between Colombia and Venezuela. Incredible virtuosity on their harp, bandolas, and percussion backed heart-felt singing evoking the cattle ranches and vast landscapes of their homeland, and a memorable showcase that deservedly finished with a standing ovation, ended with an energetic display of traditional dancing.” MONDOMIX review
“They made a great show and I really hope (actually I really believe ;-) that they will have lots of offers coming up.” Christine Semba, WOMEX Director of Content & Programmes
