The last time Betsayda's Parranda came to town — two years ago — they were literally earth-shaking. Without a doubt, they are one of our favorite global guests, bringing their exceptional party-spirit from the small Afro-Venezuelan village of El Clavo; La Parranda el Clavo literally means "the party in El Clavo".

Machado, also known as The Voice of Venezuela, is that rare singer: she can rivet a room with a few notes. And her band La Parranda is that very rare thing: lifelong friends who played together, not as a profession but as a way of life, for thirty years before being discovered by a booking agent. The group combines Betsayda’s clarion lead vocals, miraculous harmony singing by the entire ensemble, and deep, immensely danceable polyrhythms.
