globalFEST, one of the most catalytic world music events in North America, goes on the road, taking over multiple locations at Lincoln Center with a globe and genre-spanning line-up in a day-long celebration.
Charanjit Singh (New York Debut)
Anticipating the birth of acid house, a Bollywood keyboardist got his hands on an 808 drum machine in 1982, making a brilliantly ahead-of-its-time cult album, the synthesizer-fueled “10 Ragas to a Disco Beat.” Finally recognized for his pioneering rethink of Indian music, the electronic musician makes his NYC debut.
DJ Ushka (Dutty Artz)
Ushka is a Sri Lankan-born, Thailand-raised, Brooklyn-living global bass DJ who crafts sets that move from soca to kudoro to South Asian rhythms, with both cross-cultural activism and the dancefloor in mind.
Baiana Play Som
DJ João Meirelles of BaianaSystem hits the wheels of steel with a sound system set that links Jamaican and Afro-Brazilian beats.
DJ Ripley (Dutty Artz)
An insightful scholar and a seasoned DJ, Ripley spins wreckstep raggaphonics, mixing sounds ranging from dubstep and dancehall to glitched-out breaks and bhangra.
globalFEST at Lincoln Center is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts Art Works
