Hello! Thank you for using Just Answer. I am James, and I will be assisting you. As we work through your questions, think about this as a conversation. We will talk back and forth until I have all the information I need from you, and you will respond until you have all the information you need.

This is the only way I get credit for doing my job, so please do not forget this before leaving the site.
Please allow me some time to review and consider your question.
My apologies for the slight delay. Is this artist going to only perform here for a short duration on a visit? Or will you be employing the artist and paying him or her for their performances? What is the arrangement?
Hi, I’m just checking in with you. I see you have reviewed my response. Do you still need answers to your questions? Please respond so that I know what to do next.
Right, but will this be for a short term, single visit and tour?
Is the performance considered culturally unique? Or it is part of an exchange program? Can you describe what this entertainer will be doing, specifically?
OK, thank you very much.
Kindly remember that I do not get a salary here. Your positive rating is the only way I am rewarded for doing my job. So please do not forget to give me 3 or more stars, or any smiling faces, before leaving the site today. Thank you!
ANSWER: It sounds to me like this individual would have to apply for a P-3 visa as a culturally unique artist.
Here is information on how to navigate the process: https://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/temporary-workers/p-3-artist-or-entertainer-part-culturally-unique-program/p-3-artist-or-entertainer-coming-be-part-culturally-unique-program
