Date

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.

Description
One proof sheet with 36 black and white images (plus negatives). The marimba is similar to the piano, except it is played with mallets. Originally from Africa, the instrument is popular in Latin America. The Mexican American Music Survey was created to document the musical traditions of Florida's various Mexican-American communities: Apopka, South Dade County, Immokalee, the St. Johns River Basin, and Central Florida. Funded by a grant from the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Community Folklife Program, the survey was conducted between 1994 and 1996 by folklorist Robert Stone. Among the musical traditions were serenatas, conjunto, quinceanara ritual music, ranchera Michoacana, mariachi, norteno, Tejano, and pop music. At the end of the project, a sampler music tape was created by the Florida Folklife Program for distribution to various libraries.
