Friday and Saturday Part I

The 13th awesomely earthly iteration of ¡Globalquerque! happens on Friday Sept. 22 and Saturday Sept. 23 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW). A celebration of world music, global culture and universal values such as kindness, forward-future-thinking and musical unity in the face of cultural crisis, ¡Globalquerque! has a heap of activities associated with its yearly coming, from a film series to lectures and workshops, a crafts fair and musical presentations from bands that span the big blue marble we all live and die upon. This year’s event is going to be ambitious and epic. According to founder Tom Frouge, “¡Globalquerque has always been about entertainment and enlightenment. We’ve always been interested in creating a dialogue that notes our similarities while celebrating our diversity as musicians, artists and human beings.” Friday night, witness performances by Trio Da Kali a group of hereditary musicians from Mali, Trad.Attack!, musicians from Estonia who reshape traditional forms with an ear toward contemporary musical expression, south African kora guitarist Derek Gripper and Indian slide guitarist Debashish Bhattacharya. On Saturday evening, there’ll be astounding sets by Venezuela’s Betsayda Machado and her band La Parranda El Clavo, African-style hip-hop from Senegal featuring Bideew Bou Bess and a performance by New Mexico’s own DDAT, a native hip-hop trio whose complex flow is created by Def-i under the musical influence of jazzers Delbert Anderson, Nicholas Lucero, Chris Bidtah and Mike McCluhan. In advance, a one day pass to all this global goodness costs but $37, and a two-day pass costs only $59. Day of event prices are $42 and $69, respectively. Evening musical performances begin at 6:20pm on Friday and 6pm on Saturday. For a full schedule of all ¡Globalquerque! activities and to purchase tickets, visit
