Welcome to the forty-eighth annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival. This year we celebrate the cultures of Kenya and China. With over 120 participants from each country, this Festival is brought to life by thousands of staff, interns, and volunteers. I encourage you to join us either on the National Mall or online and explore all that these wonderful artists have brought to us. It’s my great pleasure to welcome you for the next two weeks of exploration, exchange, and engagement.
