Date

Description
27 color slides. 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.

Description
One reel to reel tape. (Copied onto C86-99) Rasta Samba Gynin is a Rasta group of four Haitians formed in 1984 to play Rasta cultural songs. Most of the songs (written by group member Yamba Ye) are spiritual, and follow traditional tunes. Their music stresses their African roots. For more information, see T86-57 (C86-100) for interviews with group members. Members are: Yamba Ye (writer, drums and vocal); Pierre Joseph Jabouin (drum and vocal); Henry Frederic Massena (drum and vocal); and Rodrick Maurice St. Cyr (voice and percussion). The Rasta movement (whose members are called Rastafarians) began with Marcus Garvey's back-to-Africa movement. When the Ethiopian prince Ras Tafari Makkonen was crowned Emperor Haile Selassie I in the 1930s, many in Jamaica and elsewhere in the Caribbean looked to him as a messiah, and Rasta was born. It combines elements of African and New World beliefs. Sommers's field notes on the group may be found in S 1628, Box 1, folder 11. Recorded at the Little River Community Center. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.

One contact sheet with twenty-four black and white images. The Folk Arts in Education Project in Duval County was a joint venture between the Duval County School System and the Florida Folklife Program. It was started in 1984 by folklorist David Taylor with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts to add to existing social studies curriculum. The project consisted of field research to identify local traditions and folk artists, a series of five two-day seminars to acquaint teachers with the use of folklore and folk arts, and in-school programs conducted by a folklorist and traditionalist which included visits by local folk artists. Taylor ran it until 1986. In 1988, Gregory Hansen re-initiated it with minor changes.
