Event details

Columbian harpist

Diego Laverde Rojas

An exploration of the Colombian-Venezuelan harp and llanera (lowland plains) music.

From Bogotá, Colombia, musician Diego Laverde Rojas has played the arpa llanera, or lowland harp, since 1982. It is a popular folk instrument named after Los Llanos, a lowland area between Colombia and Venezuela, and it has a fascinating history.

Now based in London, Diego performs as a soloist and is also involved in various musical projects with interesting mixtures of latin influences.
