On November 2nd, The House of Songs, Jones Center, and Tyson Foods held the Inaugural Springdale Cultural Festival, featuring Music, Art, Dance and Food from the South Asian, Marshellese, and Latin communities.
The Jones Center halls filled with laughter and joy as these communities collaborated together, some for the first time. Lasting friendships and connections were made possible by this event and we couldn't be more grateful for the one who made it possible.

Nadia Larcher in Concert
One of the most captivating folkloric artists of our time, Argentine vocalist and composer Nadia Larcher is at the forefront of the new folk music scene in Buenos Aires. Melding tradition with the modern, she has performed numerous concerts throughout South America as a soloist and with her ensembles, Seraarrebol, Proyecto Pato and Don Olimpio. She has also shared the stage with such leading artists as Juan Falú, Liliana Herrero, Juan Quintero, Aca Seca Trío, Carlos Aguirre, among others.
It was a pleasure to present Nadia and Ensamble Iberica at Sundance Square Pavilion in Fort Worth, TX, at The University of Arkansas Music in Fayetteville, AR, and at The Blake St. House in Bentonville, AR.
