From Bogota’, Colombia, musician Diego Laverde Rojas has played the arpallanera, 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.

In June each year the streets of Villavicencio in Colombia’s eastern lowlands, known as the Llanos, are given over to “joropo,” a uniquely Colombian form of tap dancing blended with ancestral dance roots that are based firmly in Flamenco. Joropo music is undoubtedly the most authentic and representative of the Colombian Savannah since it is a result of mixing the cuatro guitar introduced by the colonos, the harp brought in by the Jesuits, and small maracas which are a derivation of indigenous instruments.
