Ángel Tolosa Performs "El Arpometro de Carlos"

The artist showcases a work that combines three coastal Venezuelan rhythms for En Casa.

Venezuelan harpist, teacher, and arts entrepreneur Ángel Tolosa works in the intersection of Venezuelan music, classic and contemporary urban sounds, and world music. He has presented concerts and workshops throughout the Americas and Europe. 

From Mexico City, he sent us "El Arpometro de Carlos," a work that evokes the beauty of three Venezuelan coastal rhythms (joropo, merengue, and orquídea) and that displays the various playing techniques of the instrument, which combines European African, and Indigenous musical traditions.
