Album Notes
Fucho and his world-class musical colleagues recorded this album in Caracas, Venezuela in 2006, working with recording engineer/musician Daniel Grau (Studios Grau). The sound quality is phenomenally rich and full, and each of the 14 tracks is a truly fine sample of instrumental world music at its best.

True to form, Fucho performs his lively maracas and cuatro on every track of this album. The other members of the Tres Plus One Quartet are Henry Rubio (harp), Pedro Gómez (bass) and Manuel Urbina (Latin percussion). The special guest artists are José Ortega (piano), Jesús Muñoz (mandolin and bandola), Ramón Hernández (harp), Alberto José Requena (clarinet) and Daniel Grau (keyboards).

Playing time: 44:55

“FUCHO” (Rafael de Jesús) APARICIO

Rafael \"Fucho\" Aparicio was born and raised in San Fernando de Apure, in the “Llanos” (plains) region of Venezuela -- the “heartland” of Venezuelan folk music – and he has lived and breathed music since he was five years old. Percussion was his first love, and now Fucho is acknowledged as one of the best maraca players in the world. He is also a self-taught expert of the Venezuelan Cuatro. At the age of six he joined his brothers and his sister in the folk ensemble known worldwide as “Los Hermanos Aparicio”, recording numerous LPs and touring internationally.

He travels regularly to Venezuela in order to collaborate with colleagues Henry Rubio, Pedro Gomez, Manuel Urbina and several other exceptionally-versatile musicians on strings, woodwinds, piano and brass instruments. In 2005, he formed the Caracas-based, pan-American world music group, Fucho Aparicio & Tres Plus One Quartet. Their first album, \"Venezuelan Music for the World ~ Musica Venezolana para el Mundo\", was released in 2006 (USA) and 2007 (Venezuela). Their next album will be published in 2010.

Throughout his extensive musical career, Fucho has also been invited to play, tour and record with many other Latin American Folk, Classical, Latin Jazz, Gypsy Jazz, Salsa/Caribbean, Brazilian and World Music artists and composers, among them popular classical composer Aldemaro Romero, harpists Juan Vicente Torrealba, Celso Duarte and Ramon Romero, the Tacoma Youth Symphony, The Seattle Peace Chorus, The Snake Trio, The Venezuelan Music Project, Irene Farrera, Claudia Calderon, Jovino Santos Neto, Samia Panni, Cuerdas de Fuego, Hot Club Sandwich, Abdelli, Arturo Sandoval, Joe Santiago & The Salsa All-Stars (Giovanni Hidalgo & Pablo Rosales), Correo Aereo, Los Flacos, and others.

Fucho has been a Visiting Professor at the University of Washington School of Music, Department of Ethnomusicology, and he has taught a number of Master Classes, including one at the 1998 Percussive Arts Society International Convention and many others at colleges and universities, public schools and music institutes. He resides in the Seattle area, and he enjoys teaching students of all ages about the percussion and string instruments of Venezuela and Latin America.
