Guatemalan Mayans playing the marimba

Guatemalan Mayans playing the marimba

Date
1987
Description
One proof with ten images, plus 5 color prints. A marimba is a type of xylophone played with a mallet. Master folk artists (and marimba players) Camposeco, Francisco and Mendez entered the apprenticeship program to teach the youth of the Mayan community of Indiantown to play the marimba. The two official apprentices were Miguel Marroquin and Valentí­n Xuncax, although a number of youth participated in the program. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
