[Mediawiki-l] Pulling specific content from Wikipedia

I am working on my Masters Project for Kent State University, and my project
is to develop a wiki for their public radio station specifically dealing
with folk music.
I¹m struggling to find a way to pre-populate it with the vast information
already available on Wikipedia (or if it¹s even possible).
I see Wikipedia has an API, which would allow me access to their
information... but I don¹t know if this would fit our needs.
I also see they have a dump of the entire system, but I don¹t know if you
can pull out just the information you want.
Finally if neither of these are good possibilities, are there any good
suggestions how to go about building a wiki from the ground up to
eventually be the home for folk music on the web? :)
