The Ensamble 7/4 started from the friendship of 7 young musicians from the El Sistema Nacional de Orquestas Juveniles e Infantiles de Venezuela, also known as El Sistema, who wanted to cross the borders of academic music and immerse themselves in the wide world of traditional Venezuelan and Latin American music, and jazz, always under the level of technical and artistic demand that their academic formation within El Sistema has given them. Ensamble 7/4 has made important tours in Germany, Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Colombia, Spain, USA, Italy and Venezuela, that include concerts and master classes. As artists of the Austrian brand SCHAGERL, they participated in the International Trumpet Guild ITG 2015 in Columbus, Ohio, USA, and in Germany, in the Sauerland-Herbst Brass Festival 2015, 2016 and soon in 2017.


In 2013 and 2015, Ensamble 7/4 performed, along with maestro Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, at important stages from Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Bogota, San Francisco and Los Angeles, where they also participated in the annual Los Angeles Philharmonic Gala. At the beginning of 2017, Ensamble 7/4 produced a symphonic project with maestro Eduardo Marturet and the Miami Symphony Orchestra, called "Ocean Drive in Vienna", which premiered at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami.


Ensamble 7/4 has shared the stage with many recognized names such as James Morrison, Francisco "Pacho" Flores, Arturo Sandoval, Herbie Hancock, Thomas Gansch, Doc Severinsen, Allen Vizzutti, Andrea Toffanelli, Rex Richardson, Joe Burgsteller, Gabor Tarkovi, Luis Gonzalez, Thomas Leleu, Zoltan Kiss, Mnozil Brass, Tiger Okoshi, Sam Pilafian, among others.


Ensamble 7/4’s discography includes the albums "Tour Pabellón Criollo" (2012) and "7/4 pa 'las Doce" (2013). Currently they are working on a new album with producer Alfredo Matheus, in which they experiment with some of the most popular songs of American pop culture, fusioning them with Latin American rhythms, as a representation of the multiculturalism that exists in the United States. It is this interpretation of the American culture adapted to their traditions, not only as Venezuelans but also as Latins, which gives this work the name of "Welcome to America".
