Vytas Brenner and his band, Ofrenda, released this lp in 1975. Jayeche was an amazingly progressive record for mid 70s in terms of instrumentation. Vytas is playing his usual array of electric pianos and synthesizers, but there is also a string ensemble in the mix as well as a digital sequencer. Guitarist Pablo Manavello has added guitar synthesizer to his mix of guitars and mandolins, and drummer, Iván Velásquez, is playing moog drums. Jayeche is a mix of Prog/Jazz fusion and Venezuelan percussion. Bassist Carlos Acosta and percussionist brothers, Chu and Nene Quintero, complete Ofrenda.
