Conjunto Folklórico Nacional: Début Program

Today is the 44th anniversary of the début performance of The Conjunto Folklórico Nacional, July 25 1963. To commemorate, we are pleased to present a full scan of the original catalog for the performance. Our thanks to Román Díaz and Berta Jottar for sharing this historic document with us.

Besides the articles written by Rogelio Martinez Furé, the book also contains many historic photographs of such notables as Carlos Aldama, Lázaro Ros, Jesus Pérez, Trinidad Torregrosa, Nieves Fresneda, Luis Chacón, Ricardo Gómez Santacruz, and more. Patricio is working on restoring some of the portraits and we hope to begin posting them in the very near future. In the meantime, here are some sample pages. Click for a larger view.
