On February 19th Simon Diaz, one of the biggest Venezuelan songwriters and singers, passed away. Known as “Tio Simon” (uncle Simon) and author of many folkloric songs, and seen as an ambassador for Venezuelan folkloric music worldwide.

His most famous song is Caballo Viejo. He was also known for his poetic and lyrical compositions, although he tried with other genres such as boleros and tango, he stayed true to the llanera genre.In 2008 Diaz was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for his recording career. His songs have been sung by  Placido Domingo,  Mercedes Sosa, Caetano Veloso, Natalia Lafourcade, Gilberto Santarosa among others. 

So this Saturday, you will dance along Simon Diaz songs, but with a different twist. David Rondon, a Venezuelan Dj, remixed the most popular songs of Simon Diaz. These are the results.

Enjoy!

Love
