We have a lot of readers from the U.S. could you guys tell us a little about the music scene in Venezuela?
The metal / rock / punk-rock scene in Venezuela is really difficult due to the fact that the country is multi-cultural but with much more tendency to latin, tropical rhythms such as regueton, merengue, salsa, etc. therefore these styles have a much more numerous audience, and there is not much inversion from public or private enterprises on rocanrol
