Born in" Trinidad de Orichuna", Apure, April 23, 1918, Augusto Bracca is one of the most representative Venezuelan composers; his songs are very famous in Venezuela, and in other parts of the world.

In addition to his activity as a composer, Bracca became a singer through the help of Cándido Herrera, who also helped him in the interpretation of his compositions.

Augusto Bracca recognised in the singers José Catire Carpio and "Juan de los Santos Contreras" (El Carrao de Palmarito) two of his best interpreters. The former recorded, among others, two of the most famous pieces in his career - "Mi llano es un paraíso" and "Mi rancho llanero", and the latter made popular the famous piece "Chaparralito llanero".

There are many other singers who have successfully interpreted works of Augusto Bracca, for instance "Roiman Meza" with the song "Traigo polvo del camino", Cristóbal Jiménez with "Dios te puso en mi camino", and "Edith Salcedo", who recorded "Amorcito de mi vida"; also the "Cuarteto Pueblo", María Teresa Chacín, Quinto Criollo, "Lila Moreno, Juan Galea" and "Lilia Madrigal". The compositions of Bracca have extended the Venezuelan borders, to become favourite pieces of singers like: "Javier Solis, Olimpo Cárdenas, Irma Dorante" and the "Mariachi México".

Some of his most famous songs are: "A mi ranchito escondido, Alto Apure, Amorcito de mi vida, Chaparralito llanero, Cariño lindo, El beso que te di, El negro José, Fiesta llanera en Elorza, Lindo amanecer, Traigo polvo del camino yo no olvido mi llanura, Qué bonito es Camaguán", among others.
