Latinx And Indigenous Music At The Folk Alliance International Conference

Folk Alliance International aims to nurture, engage, and empower the international folk music community. Earlier this month, the group held its 30th annual conference in Kansas City, Missouri. Music journalist and “Beat Latino” host Catalina Maria Johnson was there along with 2700 delegates from 27 countries. Johnson says the conference supports indigenous and Latinx musicians and acknowledges their integral, but long overlooked, role in North American folk music. For our weekly Global Notes segment, we’ll explore some of the featured performers at the Folk Alliance International Conference.
