"El Arte de los Diplomaticos" Exhibition in Seoul
'El Arte de los Diplomaticos' in Seoul

The embassies of Central & South American countries and Spain have co-organized a cultural festival that will include an art exhibition of works from various ambassador's own personal collections, dance performances and musical events at the Sejong Center in downtown Seoul to introduce the rich and diverse Latin-American culture to Koreans.

'El Arte de los Diplomaticos' will begin with an opening reception Wednesday March 15, 2006, that will be followed by "Orientango," a musical performance, as well as exhibitions showing the culture of the embassies countries.

It will run for a week until Tuesday March 21, 2006.

Alfredo Francisco Ungo, Dean of Diplomatic Corps and El Salvador's ambassador to Seoul explained the festival as an effort to reveal the personal side of dimplomats to the Korean public and
"show the culture of Latin countries to South Korean people unfamiliar with it."

The embassies of Argentina, Costa Rica, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Spain, Honduras, Mexico, Paraguay and Venezuela will all take part in the event.

Attendant performances will include Machuca by director Andres Woods Santiago, a music perfomance of traditional Ecuadorian folk music by group "SISAY," and "Tango Polis" by Gong Myung Gyu. Paraguayan flamenco and folk dances will also be performed.

For more details, call the Sejong center on (02) 399-1165-6.
