Luzmira Zerpa is a prolific Venezuelan singer/songwriter based in UK who has collaborated with the likes of Marshall Allen (Sun Ra Arkestra), Orlando Julius and Mulatu Astatke, and played everywhere from the Royal Festival Hall to the Roundhouse, Glastonbury to the World Music Festival in Udaipur, India, performing alongside the likes of Manuuzmira’s music blends traditional, folkloric music from Latin America with international influences that come from her 15+ years involvement in the alternative London music scene, and her latest journey is her most personal yet: an exploration of the music she grew up with in Venezuela, reimagined for the 21st century which she will be releasing as her debut solo record in late 2024 in partnership with the Mais Um label. On the album she interprets songs she learnt as a child from her home region of Venezuela and adds some her improvisations pertinent to style of folkloric music. Refracted through a London lens as these folk songs fuse with other styles of Latin and African music, electronic and psychedelic sounds.

The Venezuelan cuatro player and vocalist Luzmira Zerpa presents her continuing exploration of the wider reaches of musica tropical. She will be focussing on the llanero repertoire – music of the tropical plains between what is called today Venezuela and Colombia. Special twist to mix is added by Congolese bass player Mulele Matondo. Colombian Harpist Diego La Verde, Ernesto Marichales ( Venezuela) and her son Jaia Yglesias from her forthcoming record on Mais Um Discos.
