globalFEST promotes global and American regional music traditions, creates opportunities for artists, inspires discovery for arts professionals to present artists from diverse cultures, and introduces new music to the public. globalFEST believes that music can be a driving force toward a society that values cultural diversity as a source of unity rather than division.
Tours and cultural exchanges that result from globalFEST showcases have helped to build an ever-widening audience for global music and, by extension, an increase in international cooperation and collaboration. You can support globalFEST's continuing work here
