Over the past decade, globalFEST has become one of the most dynamic global music platforms in North America. What started in New York as a creatively curated bright spot for global music lovers in the dark days of winter has grown into an international brand, building audiences for world music with stages at SXSW, Bonnaroo, and beyond. Founded in 2003, globalFEST spotlights artists who represent diverse global styles, bringing down boundaries between countries and creating cultural opportunities for collaboration.
Partnering with CAMI Music for its first tour across North America, globalFEST 2016 will feature the reigning queen of Haitian songs Emeline Michel, Rio’s innovative samba master Casuarina, and Jamaica’s one-stringed guitar virtuoso Brushy One String.
PLUS! Join us from 7:00-7:45pm for an exciting pre-show performance in our Kuttemperoor Grand Hall, featuring performers from Panadanza Dance Company and Wisconsin Conservatory of Music's Samba da Vida drum group!
