Description

This important cultural festival in Cosquin has celebrated Argentinean, South American and Caribbean folk music since 1961. Increasingly popular, the National Music Festival has been extended to include other cultural events such as seminars, storytelling and craft workshops. Due to the festival's popularity, Argentinean radio stations began broadcasting music live from the event and this has helped to further popularise folk music both locally and internationally. Streets are packed at the National Music Festival with indigenous musicians, vendors, craft and dancers.
