DIS-80114 Cover - 16721 Bytes The origins of the "bandolas", according to some studies, seem to date back to the Persian Empire, travelling from there to the middle east, and penetrating Andalucía with the "moro" (Moorish) invasions.   It was widely known as the "laud" for three centuries, and arrived in the Americas with the first conquerors.   It is here that the process of transformation began, until the instrument was adapted to the actual spiritual characteristics of four regional cultures in our "Tierra de Gracia", the "Ilanero" (plains), the "oriental" (eastern), the "central" and the "guayanese", (each of these terms refers to a different geographical location in the Venezuelan territories).
