Description:
The title Fuerza Interior (inner strength) refers to the “latin groove” of the piece, mixing the use of contemporary western as well as South American musical elements. The piece is also a tribute to the excellent musicians of the Black Pencil Ensemble, who share the talent of radiating a lot of energy as well as lyrical sensitivity in their playing. This piece is part of the Pulso Llanero project, organized by VisiSonor.
The traditional Música Llanera arises on the flat plains (Los Llanos) of the river Orinoco in Venezuela and Colombia. This music, mostly composed by rural farmers, thunders forward in a fierce gallop and has been over the years a source of inspiration for many folk composers, singers and writers.
In the Joropo, a popular music and dance kind, the musical traditions of South American aboriginals melt together with that of African slaves and Spanish colonists. The merge results in continuous and peerless grooves, pounding feet and simple tunes that cut straight through the soul. The performance Pulso Llanero gets its inspiration from the unexampled characteristics of the Joropo genre: a complex rhythmical structure that is associated with a folkloric tradition, smooth and organic alternation of tempi, sharp and percussive character.
