Día de los Muertos Online Celebration - Música Buena: Celebrating Music in New Mexico 

Join us on our Facebook Page for this all-ages premiere https://www.facebook.com/InternationalFolkArt/

Carol Vigil and Leila Flores-Dueñas, are Las Flores del Valle of Albuquerque, a New Mexico women’s dueto whose smooth harmonies are reminiscent of the many hermanas duos that became famous in the 1960s and helped to form lasting harmony structures of today’s US/Mexico Borderlands music. 

Joined by multi-talented musician and cultural anthropologist, David F. Garcia, Las Flores del Valle aim to preserve and share the nuances of the many musical genres that are representative of their family histories.

What’s a museum to do when its much-anticipated annual fundraising event, the Friends of Folk Art Flea, is canceled due to ongoing coronavirus pandemic? You dream up another way to offer folk art collectors premium quality handmade art for their homes, and creative personal experiences.
