Press Clipping
What to Do in New York City This Weekend

GlobalFEST was launched, in 2004, with the goal of exposing concert bookers—in town for a larger convention—to musicians from far-flung locales. One needn’t be an industry type to savor this annual showcase, which affords the musically curious a peek at a global bounty spread across three stages on Sunday, at the Copacabana. From shamanic Korean folk-pop (the delightfully uncanny Ak Dan Gwang Chil) to Algerian psychedelia (Sofiane Saidi and Mazalda), all make a noisy case for porous borders in an age of closure.—Jay Ruttenberg
