‘Culturally Unique’ Definition under P-3 Visa Can Include Hybrid or Fusion Art Forms

"Matter of Skirball Cultural Center remarkably recognizes the
significance of crossover cultural trends and that “the idea of culture
is not static,” which is increasing in our globalized world, where
people have access to music from anywhere on an iPhone and have learned
to enjoy fusion and hybrid forms. The favorable impact of this decision
can extend to other art forms such as dance and drama too. Thanks to
this decision, audiences in America need not fear of being deprived of
hearing their favorite fusion bands live!" – Cyrus D. Mehta, June 1, 2012.
