      Displacement due to political causes has been sadly common throughout history. By force or by choice composers (and other artists) have abandoned their homeland to become exiles or migrants in a different country. Fiesta! examines the cases of Manuel de Falla exile in Argentina, Rodolfo Halfler in Spain and Mexico, and Conlon Nancarrow becoming an American-Mexican composer.
