Biographical NoteReturn to Top
During a year-long residency at the University of Washington in 1970, Angel Rafael Aparicio introduced the heavily percussive Llanera harp tradition of Venezuela to audiences in the United States. Together with his younger brother Fuchito, who taught and played cuatro (four-stringed guitar) and maracas, Aparicio performed many concerts and appeared at the annual meeting of the Society of Ethnomusicology at the University of Washington and the Pacific Northwest meeting of the harpists association. Accompanied by another brother, Euclides, Aparicio returned for another year-long stint at the University of Washington in 1997. Aparicio recorded several tunes while in Washington. These were collected on the 1997 album Recordando A Venezuela. While much of the album features instrumental versions of folkloric songs, a number of original pieces, including the title-track composed by Fuchito, were included.
