Jazz fusion with a Venezuelan Cuatro

If you like jazz, you will like this video.  It´s what we could call Latin Jazz, but not as we often see it (played with congas, timbales or other popular latin instruments).  This time we will see a Latin Jazz played with a Venezuelan Cuatro.

The name of the band is Wismer Jimenez Fusion Trio as is formed and managed by the cuatro player Wismer Jimenez


The particularity of this Venezuelan Cuatro is that is an electric model.  Exactly the same as an electric guitar with a solid body, depending on an amplifier to produce the sound.

It would be like an electric Tenor Guitar but tuned differently: ADF#B
