La Shica Supercop at Global Fest
125 East 11th Street
January 13th at 6 pm.
Ten years and a world of difference. From the tense atmosphere following 9-11 that sparked globalFEST, to tents bursting with open-minded music fans at some of the biggest indie music festivals, this annual January festival-turned-non-profit arts organization has moved the needle, helping to bring global sounds from the margins to center stage. What started as a response to the sometimes risk-averse performing arts scene has opened major venues and festivals to international artists with deep roots and modern sensibilities.
Founded by some of the United States' most informed and engaged global music presenters, gF is co-led by a trio of dedicated volunteer producers/curators: Bill Bragin of Acidophilus: Live & Active Cultures, Isabel Soffer of Live Sounds, and Shanta Thake of Joe's Pub at the Public. globalFEST celebrates its 10th year on January 13, 2013 at NYC's Webster Hall (125 East 11th Street), with a dozen vibrant acts from across the world and the sonic spectrum.
