Guillermo Jiménez Leal, born 18 May 1947 in Libertad, Barinas state, Venezuela is a Venezuelan singer, musician and poet[1] who is renowned for his distinctive style of Llanos music.[citation needed]

He spent part of his musical career in France, which influenced and forged his style, tempering the usual sharp tone and rapid tempo of Llanos music, through immersing himself in the rich Paris music scene among other European and Latin American musicians, and adapting traditional Venezuelan musical elements for a broader world audience.
