The Grupo Instrumental Y Voces USB, of the Universidad Simon Bolivar,
Caracas Venezuela was founded in 1971 as a typical school band. In 1977
and 1980 additional instruments were added and since 1982 voices have also
been part of the ensemble. The ensemble has defined its works towards Venezuelan
and Latin popular music. The ensemble's main purpose is to show a young
and experimental popular without tying to preestablished rules. Albert
Hernandez has conducted the group since 1981.
