Here is the Simón Bolívar National Youth Orchestra of Venezuela playing a work by an Argentine composer.  The composer in question, Alberto Ginastera, is certainly one of the best known Latin American composers outside of his native country.  One of his most popular works is his Suite Estancia.  This is a part of that suite, namely the movement entitled “Malambo”. 



  1. They really had fun with that piece! Don’t you love their jackets? Primary colors!

    • Their jackets are based off of the flag of Venezuela. I like the piece. It has to be as much fun to play as it is to listen to.
