Etymology: The word joropo refers to a collection of musical styles that originated in the Llanos region of the Orinoco River Basin. It is one of the most characteristic cultural expressions among the criollos, the people who live in the Llanos Orientales. This name recognizes the importance and beauty of this region through one of its most iconic cultural expressions, which does not account for political boundaries and promotes brotherhood among the people of Colombia and Venezuela.
