Venezoniks is a one of a kind musical collective that blends Venezuelan folkloric rhythms such as tambores, parranda, joropo and instruments like the cuatro and the cumaco drums, with electronic sounds. The project was born out of the desire of a group of musicians to reconnect with their roots and express them in a multicultural urban context. Venezoniks strives to create a seamless fusion of preserving popular culture and innovating through the use of multimedia technology.
Cuero Trancao is Miami’s premier tambor group formed in 2002, and pioneers of Venezuelan culture in the city. They have performed and recorded alongside Oscar d’Leon and have a constant presence in Venezuelan festivals in different cities such as Miami, Houston and Atlanta.
