About the Event
globalFEST is partnering with NPR Music's Tiny Desk concerts to present exclusive video performances by 16 artists in a series entitled NPR Music’s Tiny Desk meets globalFEST.
Featuring 12 new artists, as well as 4 yet to be announced globalFEST alums, the four night series will be hosted by African superstar Angélique Kidjo:
GlobalFEST’s flagship festival takes place every January and is North America’s most important world music industry event. It sells out in advance consistently each year, attracting over 1,500 music industry professionals, members of the press and music fans! Following their participation in gF, artists have gone on to tour North America at venues such as Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center, Bonnaroo, Coachella, The Kennedy Center, SXSW, the Apollo Theater and hundreds of other theaters and festivals. Tours and cultural exchanges that result from gF showcases have helped to build an ever-widening audience for global music and by extension, an increase in international cooperation and collaboration.
