PAMAR

Celebrating the Cultures of the Americas

Pan American Musical Art Research, Inc., (PAMAR) is a non-profit organization seeking to promote better understanding between the various cultures and countries of the Americas, primarily through an ongoing and vital exchange of their music, musicians and dancers. Founded in 1984 in New York City by Uruguayan born pianist Polly Ferman, PAMAR has taken significant steps toward establishing itself as an artistic resource center. PAMAR is a registered non-profit organization in the State of New York and is incorporated as a 501(c) 3 with the Federal government. Throughout its history, PAMAR has served as a comprehensive and inclusive art service organization showcasing the talent of many musicians, composers and dancers of the Americas. Following the boom of the Latin American Art movement, performing art venues across the United States began to present a select few established Latin American performance artists. However vast numbers of talented artist remained underexposed. PAMAR was established three decades ago to present a broader Pan American overview of music and dance. PAMAR has served hundreds of performing artists, through an ongoing presentations program in national and international venues.
