the critics say...

"an evening you’ll remember for the rest of your lives."
—Jeff Tamarkin, Global Rhythm

“Globe-hopping was as easy as an elevator ride for the sold-out crowd at GlobalFest…The music reflected an interconnected world in which ethnographic purity is giving way to multicultural fusions, though a cultural heritage often shines through the international trappings.”
—Jon Pareles, New York Times

"GlobalFEST proved it's possible to respect the past without being forced to preserve it forever unchanged.”
—Carol Cooper, Village Voice

“The world-music aisle of your local record store comes to life."
—John Donohue, New Yorker
