Afropop Worldwide globalFEST 2016

[APWW PGM #725] globalFEST is New York's annual January multi-genre musical kickoff--12 bands on three stages in one wild night at Webster Hall. We hear highlights from the 2016 edition including new roots sounds from Haiti (Lakou Mizik), Colombian champeta (Tribu Baharu), suave Afro-jazz from Somi, Lebanese music maverick Simon Shaheen with his new ensemble Zafir, and lots more. The artists speak, but mostly, we give you a front-row seat for one of New York's most exciting musical happenings.
