About this Fund 

Carambola Community Music celebrates people of all ages and walks of life creating, learning, and experiencing together. We are dedicated to preserving and growing the living tradition of Mexican folk music, song, dance, and visual art along the US/Mexico border. As we explore these art forms, we discover the intertwined roots of Mexican and American cultures.

Carambola’s goals are to:

  • Provide education in Mexican folk music, song, dance and visual art
  • Provide a community home for cultural expressions rooted in Mexico and the Chihuahuan Desert.
  • Support cultural exchange by hosting visiting artists from Latin America and the U.S.
  • Provide a meeting place for El Paso arts organizations to mix and grow together.
  • Create more pathways and cultural understanding between the U.S. and Mexico through music.
  • Plant seeds in the lives of El Pasoans and the Chihuahuan Desert community through music while cultivating cultural pride and unlocking creative doors.
  • Grow the cross generational social and creative landscape of our community

Any contribution you make will help Carambola:

  • Provide instruments to people of all ages
  • Provide scholarships to ensure that anyone in the community can take classes all year long
  • Host community workshops, concerts and events.
  • Pay local and visiting artists.
