Betsayda Machado y La Parranda El Clavo

Betsayda Machado y La Parranda El Clavo - Latino Arts

Betsayda Machado is the voice of Venezuela. Raised in the small village of El Clavo, her rural recordings with lifelong friends, Parranda El Clavo, brought new attention to Venezuelan Afro-Soul genre: 'Tambor.' A spirit-shaking percussion and voice fiesta, said to make dancers float! During their first international tour the parranderos left El Clavo for the first time and made a stop at Milwaukee's Latino Arts Auditorium!

The kind of group that world-music fans have always been thrilled to discover: vital, accomplished, local, unplugged, deeply rooted
Jon Pareles, The New York Times


This engagement of Betsayda Machado y La Parranda El Clavo was made possible through Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America, a program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
