New Mexico is home to a diverse arts culture. For many years, Native Americans in the area used artistic mediums to express their life and culture. Later, these pieces became a key component of understanding Native American life in New Mexico and beyond. Music, in particular, played a pivotal role in Native American life. Music’s role in peoples’ lives has evolved and changed, but New Mexico still embraces music as a way to connect with locals and travelers alike. Get a taste of New Mexico’s music scene at the Abiquiu Chamber Music Festival. This is a great opportunity to bring talented acts to the people of Northern New Mexico in an engaging environment that helps the community thrive.

Everything You Need to Know About the Abiqui Chamber Music Festival
Where is Abiquiu?
Abiquiu, NM, is a small community that’s a 40-minute drive Northwest of Chimayo. This small village hosts many unique things to do like the Ghost Ranch. The ranch’s land formations are the result of great geological phenomenons and offer guests many ways to see it all. There are on-site museums, hikes, yoga, and even a Spiritual Retreat Center. This center is just one great example of the village’s permeating connection to the land and culture.
Like most of New Mexico, Abiquiu has expansive natural beauty. One of the most telling examples of this is the Rio Chama. This river is a tributary to the Rio Grande. You can have a front-row seat to the best views overlooking this watercourse when you attend the Abiquiu Chamber Music Festival.
