Here And There
There are many colombians abroad who have made great efforts for the llanera music. In New York and Pennsylvania live Jairo and Jaime Castillo, brothers who form part of Los Vaqueros and accompany Rene Devia when he performs in the eastern part of the country. Plutarco Toloza another band member of Los Vaqueros in New York produces and distributes Cuerdas Sonora for acoustic instruments that require high quality strings. In Florida you have Raul Delgado, a very well known folk musician and composer. Karen Stein is a colombian in Iowa who is completely devoted to culture and with her group Los Llaneros along with professor Edgar East, tirelessly travel throughout the nation. Daniel Rojas is a harpist in Miami who promotes harp workshops in different countries including in Mexico. Consuelo Sastoque is a singer who is actively performing llanera music en Miami. Also in Miami, Ricardo Herrera is a harpist and a primary point of contact for all colombo-venezuelan musicians who come to try their luck here and there.
This is not an easy task and we appreciate your support.
