The C4 Trio is one of the most innovative and original groups on the Venezuelan and Latin American music scene. Founded in 2005 by cuatro virtuosos Jorge Glem, Edward Ramirez, and Hector Molina, the group has achieved a unique sound, rooted in Venezuelan popular music but with strong touches of Jazz, World Music, and Pop. The later addition of bass player Rodner Padilla has added depth to the band's unique sound and has expanded the group’s repertoire.
C4 has shared stages and developed musical collaborations with a diverse group of respected artists including Rubén Blades, Carlos Vives, Soledad Bravo, Marta Gómez, Oscar D' León, Guaco, Serenata Guayanesa, Edmar Castaneda, Anat Cohen, El Cuarteto, Puerto Candelaria, Eddy Marcano, Aquiles Báez, Alexis Cárdenas, Servando Primera, Francisco Pacheco, Betsayda Machado, Marcial Istúriz, and Cheo Hurtado, among many others.
The group has recorded several records, CD’s, and DVD’s with the participation of many important artists. Their album Gualberto+C4 (2012), made in collaboration with the famous Venezuelan singer Gualberto Ibarreto, was nominated for a 2013 Latin Grammy for Best Folk Music Album. In 2014 they joined forces with singer Rafael "Pollo" Brito to record De Repente which won a Latin Grammy. C4 collaborated with the Venezuelan Ska band Desorden Público on the album Pa Fuera, which received a nomination as Best Latin, Rock and Alternative Abum at the 60th Grammy Awards. In 2019 their CD, Tiempo al Tiempo, made together with the Nicaraguan singer Luis Enrique, garnered a Latin Grammy for Best Folk Music Album and Best Arrangement for the song Sirena, as well as a nomination for Best Tropical Latin Album at the 62nd Grammy Awards. Their newest recording, Back to 4, is about to be released on the Ground Up Music Label.
Since its founding, the C4 Trio has maintained an intense schedule of concerts on the most important stages in the Americas and Europe, always displaying the versatility and universality of the Venezuelan Cuatro.

Danielle’s distinctive and inventive bass work resulted in her becoming the first female to receive a nomination for the Blues Foundation's 2014 Blues Music Award for Best Instrumentalist – Bass. It was a groundbreaking achievement, the result of years of hard work honing her skills through intensive touring and roadwork.
