Photos from the event "From Merengue to Dembow" by CUNY Dominican Studies Institute

Last year, the CUNY Dominican Studies Institute and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History came together to host "From Merengue to Dembow & Merenhouse: Collecting Dominican Music in America".

An event in which people of Dominican descent where invited to bring in memorabilia such as posters, albums photographs and their stories to help "build a collection that reflects how Dominican music and musical performances have shaped both a cultural and social identity in the United States."

The CUNY Dominican Studies Institute has published some photos from the event at their Flickr account.
