¡Globalquerque! features variety of music from around the world

Musicians from around the world will arrive in Albuquerque to participate in the 14th annual ¡Globalquerque! this weekend.

The event is the Southwest’s biggest world music and culture party and brings some of the finest acts from around the planet to New Mexico.

The festival features acts from such diverse regions as Cuba, Democratic Republic of Congo, Italy and Egypt, bringing with them eclectic sounds that mix the contemporary (hip hop, rock, new acoustic), with the traditional. Mexico’s legendary world-ska-sters Los de Abajo, Ireland’s buzz act Jarlath Henderson, Kurdish diva Aynur, renowned Native American-Appalachian singer-songwriter Martha Redbone, Guadeloupe’s swamp world-blues masters Delgres and a tribute to New Mexico’s legendary Antonia Apodaca (joined by an array of friends) and New Mexican music purveyors Lluvia Negra join already confirmed world-class groups like Cuba’s La Dame Blanche, Canada’s Lemon Bucket Orquestra, Congo’s Jupiter + Okwess, Egypt’s Youssra El Hawary, Italy’s Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino,

Ecuador’s Rio Mira, Korea’s Coreyah and Pan-Latin group LADAMA will also perform.

In addition to the evening performances, there is the Free Daytime Global Fiesta on Saturday, Sept. 22. Among the fun and educational activities are workshops with visiting performers, talks and presentations, international dance lessons, film, Planet Music (a musical instrument “petting zoo”), instrument building for kids of all ages and many other hands-on, cultural activities.

Open throughout the festival will be the Global Village of Craft, Culture & Cuisine, replete with booths featuring artwork, artisan crafts and gourmet international cuisine.
