Alma llanera (1914) is a “joropo”, namesake of the Zarzuela, premiered in 1914 at the “Teatro Caracas” by the Spanish company of Matilde Ruera. It became so popular that it is considered the second national anthem of Venezuela. Alma llanera translates as Soul of the Llanos (Venezuelan plains), and the lyrics of this song, written by Rafael Bolívar Coronado, depicts the nature of the llanos.
