Global Roots Festival, Closing Night

In previous posts I've talked about the first three nights of scheduled performers for our inaugural Global Roots Festival, September 24-27, 2009, at The Cedar. Here's a post about our closing night, Sunday the 27th.

The evening will open with an exciting new project from the Tuvan throat singers, Huun Huur Tu. These guys have performed The Cedar no less than ten times over the past 15 years. But for this festival they are bringing a special new project just completed with producer and electronic musician Carmen Rizzo (Alanis Morissette, Paul Oakenfold, Kate Havnevik, Temposhark, Jem, Niyaz, and Esthero), which they call Eternal:

And finally, we'll close with my favorite act from Globalfest 2009 last January in NYC, Watcha Clan. Based in Marseille, France, this is extreme, high-energy global mash-up at its best:

Once again, this will be an open dance floor evening. Trust me, you'll need it!
