Grupo Cimarron is from Colombia.
The group plays a fiery kind of music called "music llanera."
It is traditionally played by cattle herders of the vast plains of Colombia.
Plains that stretch out to the Orinoco river and western Venezuela.
The cattle herders and farm workers in that region continue an old tradition.
After a day's work, they would get together and play joropo, the local traditional music and dance.
Marco Werman introduces us to the traditionally rooted music of the plains.
