globalFEST: Creole Carnival
Venue:UW Meany Hall
Over the past decade, globalFEST has become one of the most dynamic global music platforms in North America with stages at SXSW, Bonnaroo and beyond. What started as an annual showcase in New York has grown into an international phenomenon, building audiences for such celebrated artists as Mariza, Lila Downs and The Nile Project. Now globalFEST is launching its first North American tour with a one-night mini-fest. Creole Carnival shines the spotlight on Emeline Michele, the reigning Queen of Haitian song; Casuarina, a Brazilian samba combo; and Brushy One-String, a Jamaican one-string guitarist.
