globalFEST On the Road: Creole Carnival
Venue:Nazareth College - Callahan Theater
Over the past decade, globalFEST has become one of the most dynamic events in North America. What started as an annual global music showcase in New York City has grown to include stages at SXSW and Bonnaroo, spotlighting artists who represent diverse international styles, bringing down boundaries between countries, and creating cultural opportunities for collaboration.
More than 120 emerging and established artists have performed at globalFEST, and in 2016 the festival will launch its first North American tour, Creole Carnival, featuring the reigning queen of Haitian songs Emeline Michel, Rio’s innovative samba masters Casuarina, and Jamaica’s one-stringed guitar virtuoso Brushy One-String.
