Selena featured in American Sabor
Latinos in U.S. Popular Music

Explore the history of Latinos in popular music in the United States from the 1940s to the present in this traveling exhibition celebrating the individual creativity of stars such as Tito Puente, Ritchie Valens, Celia Cruz, Carlos Santana and of course our beloved Selena.

The exhibition focuses on five major centers of Latino popular music production in the years after World War II
New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, San Antonio, and San Francisco—which represent the remarkable diversity of this music.
Each city section explores the broader histories and cultures that created the music emerging from those areas.

The exhibit includes 7 free standing units with graphics, photographs and text. Two short films, various music stations,
and a fully operational juke box so that visitors can dance to their favorite rhythms.

Created by EMP Museum, the University of Washington, and the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service,
“American Sabor,” its national tour and its related programs are made possible by Ford Motor Company Fund.
