    Ministry of Culture to Celebrate National Folklore Day
    Santo Domingo, February 3, 2017

    The Ministry of Culture (MINC, for its acronym in Spanish), through the National Directorate of Folklore (DINAFOLK, for its acronym in Spanish), will develop a program of activities to celebrate National Folklore Day, which includes workshops, awarding of recognition to outstanding Dominican musicians and an exhibition of musical instruments.

    Under Decree 173-01 of 2001, February 10 was chosen to commemorate the public dissemination of the word in the country, because on that date in 1844, the word Folklore was mentioned for the first time in a public letter under the pseudonym of "Valle Gracia" published in the newspaper El Eco del Pueblo of Santiago, issue number 97.

    In 2004, the National Directorate of Folklore (DINAFOLK) was created, demonstrating the people’s interest in the cultural manifestations offered over the years.

    Referring to the celebration, Reyes Moore, director of DINAFOLK, said that this program is an action that is part of the state cultural policies, to stimulate research, conservation and projection of Dominican folk music.

    Program

    On February 5, a training day will be held, whose objective is to reinforce and share with Dominican musicians the knowledge of the different traditional rhythms of national folklore, through conferences and panels. The events will be held at the National Folklore Directorate (DINAFOLK), from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

    The formal opening of the Exhibition of Traditional Dominican Instruments, which will be open to the public until February 28, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, will take place at DINAFOLK, February 5.

    On the 10th, National Folklore Day, an accreditation ceremony will be held where the Ministry of Culture will recognize renowned Dominican musicians, in the Auditorium of the Cultural Center of Telecommunications. This accreditation is an official document that endorses their knowledge and experience in the musical field, as a recognition of the Dominican State to their contributions in this line.

    Among the musicians who will be accredited, we can mention the maestro Antonio Rodríguez, accordionist; Florentino Álvarez, master of folkloric percussion music, and Julio Brea, percussionist.
