In this post I am playing an arrangement for piano made by me of the song “Brisas del Torbes” by Venezuelan musician and composer Luis Felipe Ramón y Rivera (1913-1993).
This piece is a bambuco. The bambuco is a type of song that appeared in Venezuela in the late nineteenth century and has it origins in the habaneras which is a cuban dance. The bambuco is popular in the Andes between Colombia and Venezuela.
I hope you enjoy this performance and I wish you in this new year all the best!
