Cesar Orozco and Jorge Glem: César Orozco was born and raised in Cuba, and moved to Venezuela in 1998, where he developed an important and prolific career as a pianist, arranger, composer and producer. Many say he has managed to make the best combination between Cuban, Jazz and Venezuelan music. Orozco has worked with world famous musicians and is a two-times Latin Grammy nominee (2019 & 2021) for Best Arrangement.
Venezuela’s musical treasure, Jorge Glem, is a composer, producer, and the greatest living master of the infectiously rhythmic four-string Venezuelan cuatro. Hailing from Cumaná, Venezuela, Glem has set out with a clear and driven purpose of presenting the Venezuelan cuatro as a universal instrument. His talent has allowed him to share the stage with worldwide figures and important music personalities enabling him to fuse the sound of this traditional instrument in genres such as jazz, salsa, bluegrass, rock, and pop.
