Fiesta Latina

Latina, Fiesta

October
The Fiesta Latina takes place on one Saturday every October in Asheville, N.C. A celebration of Latino culture and community, it features Latino music, dance, food, and arts and crafts. It also provides opportunities for local businesses, organizations, and public-health agencies to reach the local Latino community with informational displays and services.
The festival began in 1999, when an Asheville museum sponsored a textile exhibition by Latin-American artists. Officials at the Asheville Latin Americans for Advancement Society decided to use the exhibit as a launch pad for a broader event to reflect many aspects of Latino culture. The event is now affiliated with the Young Men's Institute Cultural Center, a long-standing African-American socio-cultural institution in Asheville.

Fiesta latina esta sin duda, pese a estar incluida en ella la espanola Ariadna, fue un derroche de buena y muy sonora musica que vino a animar nuestra escena musical asi fuera brevemente, y a mostrarnos una vez mas la riqueza timbrica, melodica y creativa de ese genero que, aunque tiene un buen numero de seguidores y mas de cien anos de existencia, sigue sin arraigar en forma definitiva en nuestro pais, en el cual siguen siendo muy pocos los lugares donde se puede acudir a escuchar jazz.
