The Smithsonian Folklife Festival Celebrates Bhutan
PAGE 2 PAGE 3
Houston Institute for Culture frequently brings tour groups to the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, held annually on the National Mall in Washington DC. In 2008 we enjoyed meeting many musicians, dancers, spiritual leaders and traditional bearers of centuries-old Bhutanese culture and lifeways. The above photos represent merely one aspect of what we experienced - dance performances and religious rituals. We spent our time learning about life and customs in Bhutan, as we do with any featured nation or state during the festival, and touring other museums and centers in the nation's capital.
