Smithsonian Folkways announces the July 26th release of '¡Cimarrón! Joropo Music from the Plains of Colombia,' by the Grammy-nominated Colombian ensemble Cimarrón. "El Guate" is the tenth track from the new album, a virtuosic display of fast-paced, explosive música llanera (plains music), some of the most exciting music coming from Latin America today. Propelled by maracas, percussive strings, and voice, the group certainly lives up to the meaning of their name "Cimarrón"- the wild bull.

Grupo Cimarrón is an all-star team of instrumentalists and singers from Colombia. To learn more about their grammy nominated album from Smithsonian Folkways, "Sí, soy llanero: Joropo Music from the Orinoco Plains of Colombia" (part of the Tradiciones/Traditions series of Latin American recordings), visit http://www.folkways.si.edu/albumdetai...

Grupo Cimarrón will be performing free at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival on July 2nd on the National Mall in Washington, DC. This is the group's third performance at the Smithsonian Folklife festival. The 2011 performance is part of a 10-day program "Colombia: The Nature of Culture".
