Venezuelan cuatro player, Jorge Glem, presents the national instrument of his country as a universal and fully versatile one. Mastering the cuatro, Glem is able to imitate percussion instruments and uses electronic elements based on acoustic sounds, while offering a repertoire that travels through diverse music genres such as jazz, rock, pop and fusing them with traditional Venezuelan genres, all while highlighting harmony, rhythm and melody.

Virtuoso Venezuelan cuatro player Jorge Glem has joined forces with Cuban/Venezuelan pianist, composer and arranger César Orozco, to create an unprecedented and original duo in which both performers explore their instruments to the fullest by mixing the rhythmic richness and energy of traditional Latin American genres such as Venezuelan joropo, merengue, and Cuban son with a repertoire of worldwide renowned masterpieces from pop and jazz

Grammy-nominated Venezuelan cuatro virtuoso Jorge Glem teams up with American composer and accordionist Sam Reider to create a one-of-kind fusion of folk music. With jaw dropping virtuosity and infectious chemistry, these musicians and friends are breaking down all the boundaries between their two continents, languages, and cultures. Jorge and Sam blend Venezuela’s driving dance rhythms with American folk music and jazz.
