globalFEST on the Road: Creole Carnival
Venue:Fine Arts Center
Featuring Emeline Michel from Haiti, Casuarina from Brazil and Brushy One-String from Jamaica. It’s time for a carnival! Shake out your winter blues with the energetic, driving music of the Creole culture. 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 brand, building audiences for world music with stages at SXSW, Bonnaroo, and beyond. For its first North American tour, globalFEST will feature the reigning queen of Haitian songs Emeline Michel, Rio’s innovative samba masters Casuarina, and Jamaica’s one-stringed guitar virtuoso, Brushy One String. “What is Brazilian Samba?” Audience members are invited to a pre-performance talk by the artists at 6:30 p.m. in the Concert Hall.
