Photos from (2002) Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the Mall is the most ambitious ever. It's theme is "The Silk Road," featuring the cultures along that famed ancient trade route between the East (China & Central Asia, with extensions to the Indian subcontinent) and the West (Italy and Western Europe), through the Middle East (Turkey, Iran, Iraq). More than 300 musicians, dancers, and artisans from some 25 nations along the fabled Silk Road are present on the Mall for the two weeks of the Folklife Festival, demonstrating the living culture of their regions.
