"Over the last decade Globalfest has presented 21st-century world music as an accelerating fusion, a recombinant free-for-all of local traditions meeting ideas and technologies from afar. It’s a realistic view of how musicians work; very few are purists. And some hybrids have grown durable enough to feel like traditions of their own."
The support from our community is crucial and more important than ever. Keeping artists and the entire performing arts infrastructure front and center is a huge priority for globalFEST, and we’ve been hard at work to re-conceptualize what gF means to our community. Your belief in our mission is critical to our continued efforts.
Your contribution directly supports our work to push international music into the center of the performing arts field and to help artists develop sustainable careers, to bring global music across the country, break down barriers, and to encourage cultural understanding through music all at a time where creating opportunities for cultural exchange and diverse perspectives is more important than ever.
