Venezuela is a popular country where in recent times, is known for its political and social situation. Notwithstanding, its cultural riches, its natural beauties, its people and its treasures have moved to a second place. With this large-scale production, “Through my Eyes”, we want to present to the world another vision of this great country. The “Mestizaje” was the greatest work of art achieved by the Spaniards in the New World, a mixture of European, Africans and Indigenous people. One of the most evident qualities of Venezuelan music and dance is its diversity and unique blending of rhythmic styles that arrived in the Americas, evolved and became influential. Because of our Hispanic heritage, our first objective is to promote the Hispanic culture beginning at its origins and moving on through our history.
