"Music that has roots, that has identity, has a powerful strength," says musician-producer Aquiles Báez about the joropo oriental of eastern Venezuela. Amid the anonymous global musical mix, masters of this string-driven, highly improvised, local music spin out endless threads of artful melody woven into a rich rhythmic fabric. This all-star group of Venezuelan masters applies a rainbow of sounds—guitars unique to the region, button accordion, violin, maracas, bass, and drums—to paint a panorama of a rediscovered, powerful musical tradition on the ascendance. 5.5"l. x 5"h.; 55 minutes, 14 tracks, 44-page booklet with extensive bilingual notes and photographs.
