IFAM News:

This summer’s 11th annual International Folk Art Market kicked off July 10 with a Community Celebration in Santa Fe’s Railyard Park. The annual Artists’ Procession included more than 100 of the 2014 Market artists from more than 60 countries, all in colorful national dress.

The Market ran through July 13 at Milner Plaza on Santa Fe’s Museum Hill and included international food vendors, artist demonstrations, hands-on art making activities for children, dance and the opportunity to meet artists from around the world.

The celebrated Afro-Colombian band Las Alegres Ambulancias performed at the event.  At the core of Las Alegres Ambulancias is its desire to preserve the legends, stories, and songs that of their ancestry. The band is representative of the culture of Colombia’s Caribbean area, a living demonstration of how 500-year-old African traditions are surviving in this globalized world.
