The band »Compasses« has its roots in Venezuelan folklore, which it turns into a completely new musical experience. The quartet combines the beauty of traditional Joropo with the energy and power of genres such as jazz. With technical virtuosity, the musicians demonstrate their instruments’ capability. Some of the members of »Compasses« received their musical training in the »Sistema de Orquestas de Venezuela« and are currently working as lecturers at this renowned institute. They have won major folklore music awards and have already performed in Latin America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
»Compasses« consists of Eduard Jiménez (harp), Alis Cruces (cuatro), Nelson Echandia (bass) and Andrés Ortiz (maracas). The four Venezuelan musicians are giving their first performance in Munich.
In addition to the concert, the audience will have the opportunity to try out various Latin American instruments, to learn about their origins and the influence of European, African and indigenous cultures on Latin American music, and to find out more about traditional Latin American rhythms.
