globalFEST On the Road: Creole Carnival
Over the past decade, globalFEST has become one of the most dynamic global music platforms in North America. What started as an annual showcase in New York has grown into an international phenomenon, dazzling new audiences with world music artists on 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. The current 2016 run of North American engagements comprise globalFEST’s inaugural tour.
Take part in this exciting movement and catch performances by Emeline Michel, the reigning Queen of Haitian Song; Casuarina, one of the most respected samba bands of Brazil, and Brushy One String, a Jamaican bluesman of soulful intensity and profound faith. Celebrate diverse culture right here in Monterey County by bringing your family to Sunset Center between 3 and 6pm to enjoy a bazaar of local crafts and wares, eclectic cuisine, live music, and more!
