Hecho En Venezuela, part 2

Most of these records were found in living rooms, markets, or secondhand stores, on our most recent trip to Maracaibo...

Silvio Rodriguez -- Sueño Con Serpientes
(from "Dias Y Flores" 1975)

A beautiful song by one of the founding Cuban nueva trova artists, popularized during the 70's, in Venezuela, for his protest/political folk songs.

Angel Rada -- Carillon
(from "Upadesa" 1980)

Phenomenal, mostly unknown, Cuban-Venezuelan synth musician, who started the 80's Ethnosonic movement, after a visit to Kling Klang Studio.

Chelique Sarabia -- Orinoco Rio Abajo
(from "La Garza Negra Y De Hierro" 1975)

Celebrating the Venezuelan nationalization of iron and oil, this album continues to explore Chelique's "Revolución Electrónica."

Vytas Brenner -- Madrugada
(from "Hermanos" 1974)

A pioneer of the Venezuelan Progressive scene, Brenner's music is a hybrid of electronic and traditional instrumentation.

Grupo Folklorico Y Experimental Nuevayorquino -- Aguemimo
(from "Lo Dice Todo" 1976)

This 70's Bronx-based Afro-Puerto Rican/Cuban collective centered their recordings around improvisation and traditional music.

And, if you missed our previous Hecho En Venezuela post (featuring other tracks from Chelique Sarabia and Silvio Rodriguez), we've also included those HERE.
