New Mexico has become an internationally-acclaimed destination for Flamenco.
The University of New Mexico is one of the few schools in the nation teaching the old world tradition of dance and music. Now, the Museum of International Folk Art explores its journey from Spain to America… and how it’s changed over the years.
What started from the Gypsy cultures in northern Spain, Flamenco found its ways to the new world in Latin America, ultimately making its way to New York. At the same time, it found its way to New Mexico, where the colorfully-adorned wardrobe, passionate musical compositions and hypnotic dance took hold in America.
MOIFA’s exhibition combines these elements in an interactive timeline for guests, exploring where the craft has been, and where it’s going in the future.
