Mount Baker Theatre Presents:

globalFEST On the Road: Creole Carnival

Mount Baker Theatre 2015-16 Season Event

Over the past decade, globalFEST has become one of the most dynamic global music platforms in North America, growing from an acclaimed festival into a catalytic non-profit organization for the performing arts. globalFEST spotlights artists who represent diverse global styles, bringing down boundaries between countries and creating cultural opportunities for collaboration. What started as an annual showcase in New York has grown into an international sensation, building audiences for world music at SXSW, Bonnaroo, and beyond.

Creole Carnival honors the roots of African musical currents crossed with a fusion of sounds from the Americas. A trio of international artists explores Carnival, the worldwide pre-Lent festival that’s everyone’s favorite excuse for a party, when magic and religious fervor intersect with a madcap, no-holds-barred soiree. Brazilian samba band Casuarina unites with native Haitian-jazz fusion singer Emeline Michel and Jamaican single-string guitarist Brushy One String to celebrate each country’s own rich traditions of music, dance, costume, and cutting loose.
