Pan American Musical Art Research is a 501(c) (3) organization founded in 1984 to promote awareness of and appreciation for the cultures of Latin America by sponsoring and presenting multi-disciplinary performances and events to a broad audience of all ages, and racial, cultural and economic backgrounds in the Tri-state area, in collaboration with local arts and culture organizations.

PAMAR's mission is to share the rich cultural heritage of Latin America and the Latin American diaspora by showcasing dance, film, music,  literature, theatre, and visual and performing arts representing or influenced by Latin American culture, as well as to provide increased exposure and performing opportunities for Latino artists.


Launched in 2006, the Latin American Cultural Week is an annual city-wide festival which highlights the production of dance, film, literature, music, theater, visual and performing arts of the Americas in New York City.
