RUMBARROCO invites you to celebrate Simon Bolivarʼs birthday with music, Venezuelan treats, and the continuation of our humanitarian & educational campaign for Venezuela. We have partnered with Venus Service Express to guarantee delivery of our campaign to Venezuela.

Besides the Rumbarroco ensemble, special guests include award-winning Leo Blanco and his trio. Our popular Venezuelan singer Carlos Regalado will lead us in a sing-along of Venezuelan songs. Unique entertainer Anny Paez will be one of our MCs for the event. Cristina Aguilera, a passionate Venezuelan Human Rights activist, will give a brief overview of the current crisis in Venezuela.

The needs in Venezuela are many. At this time we have decided to focus our efforts on support for the following:

To send musicians in different regions of Venezuela much-needed replacement strings for their instruments.

A childcare center in Caracas for school supplies.

A Foundation in Caracas that connects graphic design with social justice, producing huggable dolls to be distributed to children at the local childrenʼs hospital that cares for low-income families.

A project in a rural area of Miranda state to provide school supplies for a school.

A foundation in the Los Andes region that trains a group of youths to produce podcasts.

Finally, we aim to collect used laptops and tablets to support educational efforts carried out by the foundations we work with.
