Los Angeles is a city that defines the image of American pop culture, strong and loud and imitated throughout the world. Yet, in the midst of the glitz and noise, there is a softer voice rooted in people getting together to sing, play, dance and tell stories. We are the living communities of  the folk and traditional arts fueled by the energy of Los Angeles' vibrant and culturally diverse population..
