Join us in a celebration of music drawn from tradition and reflective of the struggles, triumphs, and stories of a new generation of musicians.

This season’s lineup features artists drawing on the musical histories of their home countries — Ethiopia, Brazil, The Balkans, Turkey, and The Middle East — as they push the boundaries of traditional world music genres.
