About the NYC South American Music Festival

The NYC South American Music Festival, El Colectivo Sur’s flagship program, celebrates the diversity of South American music by presenting in New York City an exciting array of musicians who have blurred the boundaries between their musical cultures and carved out a renovated identity of the South American diaspora.

In line with El Colectivo Sur’s mission, the NYC South American Music Festival highlights a new and innovative music scene: music rooted in the folklores of various countries of the region, as they borrow from each other and meet with styles from around the globe including pop, rock, jazz and world music.

Since its inception in 2013, the NYC South American Music Festival has received increased mainstream press and television coverage and has consistently exceeded attendance expectations, including among its audience an overwhelming number of national and international arts presenters attending the APAP NYC conference.

In addition to the NYC South American Music Festival, El Colectivo Sur curates and produces concerts and showcases during the year featuring local and international artists in prominent New York City stages.
