Introduction:
In 2004, the Festival continued its long tradition of presenting the diverse cultural heritage of the people of the United States and the world to large public audiences in an educational, respectful, and profoundly democratic way, with three major programs and the Ralph Rinzler Memorial Concert honoring longtime collaborator, Roland Freeman.

In 2004, the Haitian people marked the bicentennial of their independence. In 1804, inspired by American and French ideals, Haitians fought for their own freedom, abolished slavery, and created the second independent nation in the Western Hemisphere. Haitians have sought freedom and liberty ever since, and through tough times have relied on their rich culture and seemingly boundless creativity to persevere. The Festival program, in the planning for several years, came at what was obviously an important time for Haitians and Americans - particularly Haitian Americans. It provided an excellent opportunity for Haitians to tell their own stories through their skill and artistry, and for Festival visitors to learn from them.

The inaugural program in a planned multi-year sequence, the Latino music program helped the Smithsonian reach out to a major segment of the American population not only as audience, but also as presenters, performers, and spokespeople for their own cultural expressions. Latino music includes a wide variety of traditions now energizing social and community life in the United States. Some are centuries old and reach back to early indigenous, European, and African roots. Others have come to us more recently, with immigrants from south of our border. Sharing these traditions broadly at the Festival contributed to a valuable and needed cultural dialogue, particularly one involving the growing number of Washingtonians of Latino heritage.

The Mid-Atlantic maritime program allowed the Smithsonian to convene a public discussion of "water ways" spanning six eastern seaboard states. Many people and communities depend upon the ocean, coast, bays, and rivers for their livelihoods - whether through commercial fishing and aquaculture or recreation and tourism. At the time of the Festival, homes, jobs, and ways of life were facing unprecedented economic and ecological challenges. The Festival program brought together scores of workers, professionals, and officials who used, monitored, and regulated these water ways to demonstrate their knowledge and inform visitors about the key issues facing them.

The 2004 Festival took place for two five-day weeks (June 23-27 and June 30-July 4) between Madison Drive and Jefferson Drive and between 10th Street and 14th Street, south of the National Museum of American History and the National Museum of Natural History (see site plan). It featured three programs and the Rinzler Concert.

The 2004 Program Book included schedules and participant lists for each program; keynote essays provided background on the Festival and on each of the programs (with versions in Kreyòl and Spanish of the respective essays).

The Festival was co-presented by the Smithsonian Institution and National Park Service and organized by the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.

Introducción:
En 2004, los hispanos eran el grupo minoritario más numeroso y el segmento de la población estadounidense de más rápido crecimiento, habiéndose duplicado ampliamente desde 1980 y representando la mitad del crecimiento total de la población desde 2001. En la década anterior, los mayores índices de crecimiento hispano no se habían registrado en California, Texas, Nueva York, Miami, Chicago y otros bastiones latinos de larga tradición, sino en estados como Arkansas, Indiana, Michigan, Carolina del Norte, Virginia y Wisconsin. Junto con el crecimiento de la población latina, se produjo una expansión de la música latina en los escaparates de las tiendas de discos y los locales de ocio.

En Estados Unidos, existe un "universo paralelo" de actuaciones de música latina junto a la dominante música anglosajona. La industria de la música y los medios de comunicación latinos tienen una poderosa presencia en la vida estadounidense y su influencia va en aumento. La música latina y las voces de los propios músicos nos ayudan a comprender las dificultades, aspiraciones y alegrías de los latinos en el proceso de establecer su residencia en Estados Unidos.

Al igual que otros grupos culturales minoritarios en los Estados Unidos, la comunidad latina ha utilizado a menudo la música para expresarse en el espacio público: celebraciones cívicas, festivales étnicos, programas de educación cultural y eventos políticos, por ejemplo. Muchos tipos de música que históricamente estaban destinados a ocasiones privadas -como los bailes sociales o la devoción religiosa- adquieren un nuevo significado cuando se trasladan al ámbito público para enviar un mensaje de identidad: "Somos dominicanos" (o mexicanos, o cubanos, o puertorriqueños, etc.). Algunos géneros, manifestaciones y repertorios musicales se asocian profundamente con la "cultura de origen" o tienen un "atractivo escénico" para agradar a un público amplio con una fuerte imagen de identidad cultural. Se convierten en símbolos, dirigidos a un público nuevo y más amplio o al mismo público comunitario, pero con el nuevo propósito de definir la identidad del grupo.

A la vez que las formas de música (y danza) se convirtieron en vehículos para crear identidad social, también se convirtieron en medios para crear un nuevo sentido de comunidad. En cualquier sociedad, la música es un imán social, una forma de reunir a la gente, la principal atracción en un sinfín de acontecimientos sociales. Pero entre los latinos de Estados Unidos, este papel se ha amplificado y su importancia ha aumentado. La música se ha convertido en un vehículo primordial para reunir a personas que comparten un origen similar y recrear su perdido espíritu de comunidad, especialmente para una comunidad latina inmigrante dispersa o para una cultura minoritaria latina que vive entre personas de otros orígenes étnicos que hablan lenguas distintas al español.

El programa del Festival de 2004 fue un componente emblemático de un proyecto más amplio de música latina concebido por el Centro de Tradición Popular y Patrimonio Cultural del Smithsonian. En 2001, el sello discográfico sin fines lucrativos Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, una división del Centro lanzó su "Latino Music Recording Initiative", titulada Tradiciones/Traditions, para ampliar los archivos de música latina, publicar y difundir nuevas grabaciones y crear una página web con material educativo bilingüe. Se planificó que el componente del Festival del Proyecto de Música Latina se mantuviera durante cuatro años consecutivos sin precedentes, y que el programa de cada año estuviera configurado por un tema especial que pusiera de relieve varios asuntos relacionados con la música y la cultura latina. El programa se propuso explorar las raíces históricas y el desarrollo de las culturas latinas en Estados Unidos, las cuestiones sociales contemporáneas articuladas en la música y la danza, y el papel que desempeña la industria musical en la continuidad y transformación de la tradición musical latina. El programa de 2004 expuso estos temas y anticipó lo que seguiría en años posteriores (véanse también los programas de 2005, 2006 y 2009).

Olivia Cadaval y Daniel Sheehy fueron los curadores, con Russell Rodríguez como co-curador invitado; Nilda Villalta fue la coordinadora del programa. El Comité Asesor estuvo integrado por: Norma E. Cantú, G. Adriana Cruz Manjarrez García, Enrique Lamadrid, Steven J. Loza, Ana María Ochoa, Olga Nájera-Ramírez y Carolina Santamaría.

Este programa ha sido generosamente financiado por el Smithsonian Latino Initiatives Fund y el National Endowment for the Arts. Anheuser-Busch, Inc. aportó fondos adicionales y Delta Air Lines proporcionó asistencia. Entre las organizaciones que colaboraron figuran Arts of the Americas Institute - University of New Mexico, Radio Bilingüe, Univisión y el Smithsonian Center for Latino Initiatives.
Introduction:
In 2004, Hispanics were the largest minority group and the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population, having more than doubled since 1980 and accounting for half the total population growth since 2001. In the preceding decade, the highest rates of Hispanic growth had been not in California, Texas, New York, Miami, Chicago, and other long-time Latino strongholds, but in states such as Arkansas, Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Hand in hand with the burgeoning Latino population came an infusion of Latino music, usually called música latina in the windows and bins of record stores or entertainment venues.

In the United States, a "parallel universe" of Latino performance exists alongside the English-dominant mainstream. The Latin music and media industries are a powerful presence in American life, and their influence is increasing. The sounds of música latina and the voices of musicians themselves help us understand the struggles, aspirations, and joys of Latinos in the process of making the United States their home.

As with other cultural minority groups in the multicultural United States, Latino communities have often used music to express themselves in the public commons - civic celebrations, ethnic festivals, cultural education programs, and political events, for example. Many kinds of music that were historically intended for private occasions - such as for social dancing or for religious devotion - take on new meaning as they are moved into the public realm in order to send a message of identity: "We are Dominican" (or Mexican, or Cuban, or Puerto Rican, and so forth). Some musical styles, forms, and repertoires have deep, "core-culture" associations and/or "stage performance value" to please broad audiences with a strong stamp of cultural identity. These become symbols, aimed either at a new, broader audience or at the same community audience but with the new purpose of defining group identity.

At the same time that forms of music (and dance) have become vehicles for creating social identity, they have also become means for creating a new sense of community. Music in any society is a social magnet, a way of bringing people together, the major attraction at a myriad of social events. But among Latinos in the United States, this role has been expanded and its importance heightened. Music has become a primary vehicle for reuniting people who share a similar background and recreating their lost sense of community - especially for a dispersed immigrant Latino community, or for a Latino minority culture living among people of other cultural backgrounds who speak languages other than Spanish.

The 2004 Festival program was a signature component of a larger Latino Music Project conceived by the Smithsonian's Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage. In 2001, the non-profit record label, Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, a division of the Center, launched its Latino Music Recording Initiative, entitled Tradiciones/Traditions, to expand Latino music holdings, to publish and disseminate new recordings, and to create a Web site offering bilingual educational materials. It was planned that the Festival component of the Latino Music Project would be sustained over an unprecedented four consecutive years, with each year's program shaped by a special theme highlighting a coherent constellation of issues in Latino music and culture. The program aimed to explore the historical roots and development of Latino cultures in the United States, contemporary social issues articulated in music and dance, and the role the music industry plays in the continuity and transformation of Latino musical tradition. The 2004 program laid out those themes and previewed what would follow in subsequent years (see also the 2005 2006 and 2009 programs).

Olivia Cadaval and Daniel Sheehy were Curators, with Russell Rodríguez as Guest Co-Curator; Nilda Villalta was Program Coordinator. An Advisory Committee included: Norma E. Cantú, G. Adriana Cruz Manjarrez García, Enrique Lamadrid, Steven J. Loza, Ana María Ochoa, Olga Nájera-Ramírez, and Carolina Santamaría.

This program was generously funded by the Smithsonian Latino Initiatives Fund and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional funding came through Anheuser-Busch, Inc., with in-kind support through Delta Air Lines. Cooperating organizations included Arts of the Americas Institute - University of New Mexico, Radio Bilingüe, Univisión, and the Smithsonian Center for Latino Initiatives.
