What's this World Music?
Marimba Sol de Chiapas
Performing on an enchantingly authentic instrument from Chiapas, Mexico, these talented musicians execute a choreographed dance of mallets across marimba bars, playing an eclectic mix of folkloric and popular musical styles from Mexico, Central American, and the Caribbean as you listen to “the wood that sings.”
Juha’s World Beat
Finnish accordionist Juha Silfverberg and his group play an exciting mix of international music. For sure, you will hear the sophisticated folk music of Finland, but keep your ears pealed for other sounds as well: perhaps Irish, Bulgarian, African…
Guitarras Ibericas with guest Karim Memi
This group features Fado, the soul music of Portugal. The sound is sad, mournful and powerful. But given these multi-talented musicians, we might expect a hint of Argentine tango or Spanish Flamenco as well.
Gamelan Genta Kasturi
The impressive array of colorful instruments lets you know this will be different. This Balinese ensemble plays traditional music as well as original works in the Balinese style using authentic Balinese instruments.
