“Luz de las Naciones” (Light of the Nations), an annual celebration of Latin American culture hosted by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will be Friday, November 3, and Saturday, November 4, 2023, at 8 p.m. Mountain Standard Time in the Conference Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
This international event, now in its 21st year, features a cast of 1,000 volunteer musical artists wearing traditional clothing and performing music and dances representing Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Panama, Peru and Spain.
The 2023 theme for “Luz de las Naciones” is “Nuestra Tierra” (Our Land).
“We are excited to be back in the Conference Center once again,” said Israel González-Nieri, Luz de las Naciones director. “This year’s cultural event will feature new music and dances depicting not only the traditions and beauty of the land of our forefathers, but also how blessed we are to live in the promised land that God prepared for us long ago. We will also celebrate the arrival of the first Latino settlers that came to this valley a century ago looking for a better life and the opportunities to continue to build the kingdom of God on earth.”
