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)

Ripley has been tearing up dance floors since 1995 with her ferociously adventurous blend of global street bass sounds, opening minds and freeing bodies to work out new paths to liberation.

Venue Description: The world's leading performing arts center and home to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the School of American Ballet.
