Loro - Storytelling and music from Venezuela Event image


The word 'Loro' is Spanish for 'Parrot'. The idea for the name derives from the hundreds of parrots that live in Venezuela, many of these as pets or a house guests. They often imitate our sounds and songs, and have become a part of our society, histories, and identity. The Loro Project is inspired by these colorful birds. Like them we aim to share our music, and stories. Experience story telling through traditional instruments like the Cuatro, Bandola Llanera, and Latin American Guitar (we have a long tradition of string instruments in Venezuela).

The Loro team is comprised of Cuatro maestro Jesus Camacho, and Latin Grammy award winning musician Daniel J Marquez, both Venezuelans now living in Melbourne.
