Video Glimpse Tucson Meet Yourself 2012


A brief glimpse at the colors and beauty of Tucson and the Sonoran Desert cultures at today's Tucson Meet Yourself folklife festival. The three day annual event included international food booths, artists, low riders, and a wide diversity of music on numerous stages for three days, including traditional Yaqui and Tohono O'odham singers and dancers (who were not filmed out of respect.) From the Sonoran tortillas, chiles and mesquite cookies, to the foods from Colombia, Russia, India, and Sweden, along with strong black Arabian coffee, it was an incredible global feast. With hundreds of cultures represented, it was inspiring, delicious and beautiful.
