The cuatro and double bass players mix their traditional sound with their knowledge of jazz harmony and improvisation.

Avila Quartet’s music is a journey through the different regions of Venezuela, during which the public can discover a fresh approach to the multiculturalism of their country. The band also plays original music and arranges other kinds of genres such as French valse musette in a venezuelan way. This musical mix gives the band a fresh and original sound.
