The Apex, Bury St Edmunds

Back in 2007, Welsh harpist Catrin Finch met with Colombian joropo band Cimarron and embarked on an exhilarating tour of Wales, a collaboration repeated in 2009 and 2010.

Ten years later, Catrin and Cimarron meet again to tour the UK.

Catrin Finch is a remarkable and fearless artist, one of the world’s leading harp players, whose career has featured both solo performances with the world’s top orchestras and, more recently, collaborations with leading world music artists, including Toumani Diabate and, most successfully, Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita, with whom she forms “one of the most popular world music acts of this decade” (Tim Cumming, Songlines).

The 6-piece Grammy-nominated Cimarron perform joropo dance music from the cattle-rearing plains of the Orinoco, rooted in a deep tradition defined by the mestizo mixed heritage of African, Spanish and indigenous cultures, and led by harpist and composer Carlos Rojas. Cimarron make wild, untamed music that preserves the spirit of freedom found in one of the world’s most untouched regions. Fast paced and powerful, it’s music, with impetuous singing, amazing stomp dancing and fierce instrumental virtuosity of strings and percussion.

A rare chance to witness a thrilling global collaboration.

“Absolutely brilliant!” - Lucy Duran, BBC Radio 3
