This work would have not been completed without the guidance, technical support, and hands-on assistance of Dr. Dana Everts-Boehm. We are thankful for the trust and financial support of the Folklife Division of the Tennessee Arts Commission, as well as the HoLa Hora Latina Board for embracing this project. Proofreaders for the English text included Terri Grove, Sandra Jácome, and Margot Kline. Carole Ann Borges assisted in poetry translations. Edy Recendez edited video and audio. And last but not least, we are very grateful to each and every one of the artists and groups we interviewed. We were touched by their passion. We received a gift of their knowledge. We appreciate the fruit of their work. And we hope to have transmitted to the reader their contribution to global richness of the diverse Latino cultures.
