Roots Music Exhibit Series

The purpose of this project is to document the history and cultural impact of folkloric, musical, and artistic traditions from a variety of cultures in the communities where they are taught and practiced in the diaspora. Each exhibit focuses on an artist living and working in New Jersey to practice, preserve, and share their traditions. These are exceptional artists, teachers, and culture bearers living in our area, and we are honored to share their stories here on the Raíces Digital Archive.

This is an ongoing exhibit series, the Raíces Digital Archive Team will continue to curate new exhibits featuring roots music genres and local musician who work at preserving and sharing them. We will also continue to document the work of the artists already featured here and add to the dynamic exhibits and collections featured here.
