Live music of Venezuela by the VNote Ensemble

Hailed for its spirited performances and fascinating fusion of Venezuelan folk music with adventurous jazz, the VNote Ensemble gives voice to the hidden treasures of Venezuelan music. Original compositions, keen arrangements, and great musicianship blend to deliver a unique sound performed by Jackeline Rago (Venezuelan cuatro, percussion, and vocals), Donna Viscuso (flute), Sam Bevan (bass), and Michaelle Goerlitz (percussion).
