The exhibition “Not Lost in Translation: The Life of Clotilde Arias” premiered at the US Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. Arias was a Peruvian immigrant who arrived in New York in 1923 during the Great Depression, at the age of 22. Arias became an accomplished composer, musician, journalist, activist and educator. Her musical composition, Huiracocha, was celebrated worldwide. In 1946, the US State department commissioned her to provide an official Spanish translation of “The Star Spangled Banner”, the US National Anthem.
