AllMusic Review by

The delightful popular music of Venezuela -- particularly in its elegant older forms -- is particularly hard to find. Herrera's recording is a set of instrumentals for harps, guitar, maraca and sometimes electric bass. As with Jaramillo, this is polished stuff, quite a distance from the village or the street corner, but very elegant, unpretentious and strongly local. It's a great and overly rare treat.
