El Tuyero Ilustrado from Venezuela



Based in the “joropo tuyero,” El Tuyero Ilustrado was formed by cuatro player Edward Ramirez and songwriter Rafa Pino.   These musicians share the universal potential of this form of joropo from Venezuela, comparing it to the “son” from Cuba, the “merengue” from Dominican Republic or the “samba” from Brasil.
