Twelve Bands, Five Hours, Three Stages, One Night

January 6th, 2012

When you think of music festivals, you probably think of summertime, but you don’t have to anymore because globalFEST2012 comes to Webster Hall this Sunday. It’s just one night, but in the span of five hours, 12 bands from across the globe—the Gloaming, Bélo, Yemen Blues (above), Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino, Wang Li, Zaz, Mayra Andrade, M.A.K.U. Sound System, the Silk Road Ensemble, SMOD, Diogo Noqueira and Debo Band—will play three stages, providing you with five nonstop hours of music. This is a unique opportunity to take in a huge range of music, including bands that have never before played in New York City or even this country. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday night.
