“El Criollismo” (Venezuelan Folklore) isn’t simple. It is a splendid universe. Our own, is a wonderful mixture of every sense. Criollo, is the sound, along with its speedy rhythm and melodies that overpowers you. It is the taste of fruits and the taste of chocolate. My tradition is more than just a whim. It is the people, nature and culture which have made me Venezuelan. Many of these came from that Barlovento place where I grew up filling my senses. It is a sequence of attitudes and traditions that I feel are getting lost. Before that happens, I want to express them whole, and for them to make history.
