Ethnic Artists

Long Island is home to many different ethnic groups, including both recent immigrants and established communities. Through ongoing fieldwork and oral interviews, Long Island Traditions documents musicians and craftspeople who continue to serve important functions within their communities. Working with these master artists, Long Island Traditions develops educational programs for school and general audiences.

Most of the artists listed here are available for public programs. To arrange an event, please call us at (516) 767-8803 or e-mail us at
