Una noche de ritmos globales con la música latina siempre al centro de la parranda!.
This is the best party in NYC to kick start every new year, people!. Global Fest lives up to its name: It brings to Webster Hall a line up of top notch performers from all over the world for a night of discovery, joy and dancing. 
This year marks its tenth anniversary and Global Fest will celebrate it presenting 12 super acts that will have you dancing the night away!.
GlobalFEST, more than a one day festival has become a celebrated  non-profit arts organization helping to bring global sounds from the margins to center stage, and yes, many of these sounds are deliciously Latinos. I have seen the likes of The Pedrito Martínez Group, Novalima, La-33, Orquestra Contemporanea de Olinda and Aurelio Martínez performing in a single night and on January 13th, two hot latino numbers will be added to this roster: La Santa Cecilia and La Shica will be waiting for you at Webster Hall:

* La Santa Cecilia: Big, bold, and danceable, this Latin Grammy-nominated L.A.-based band harnesses gutsy vocals and roaring accordion to explore pan-Latin and alt-pop good times.

* La Shica: Flamenco and funk-tinged rock are the perfect pairing in this Madrid quartet’s hands. Serpentine, sultry flamenco vocals and dance meld with electric guitar flourishes for hard-hitting nuevo flamenco.

Disfrutenlos ahora!:

*  La Santa Cecilia con 'La negra'!


La shica con 'Limosna de amores':

Other Highlights include

* Lo’Jo: Polyglot pioneers of border-defying music from elsewhere and everywhere, the French band synthesizes powerful grooves, delightful vocals, Gallic soul, and influences that range from the Saharan nomad blues of the Tuareg to Balkan beats.

Stephane Wrembel and His Band: 2012 Grammy-nomineeWrembel’s wry, skillful interpretation of the jazz manouche guitar sound, first made famous by Django Reinhardt, has caught the ears of Woody Allen (who used Wrembel’s work in Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris). His five-piece band summons up the glorious, swinging, bittersweet spirit of Gypsy jazz.

* A Tribe Called Red: This crew of DJs and audio-visual artists, joined by live pow wow singers, reimagines pow wow music for Canada’s increasingly urbanized aboriginal youth, reclaiming clichés and transforming them into hot club beats and striking images.

* Christine Salem (NYC debut): One of the few female voices of Maloya, a traditional music of the island of Réunion, the rebellious Christine Salem is an extraordinary artist with a unique path. Accompanied by a kayanm, a percussion instrument made from sugar cane flower stems and seeds central to Maloya music, she sings in Creole, Malagasy, Comorian, or Swahili, blending music from the Indian Ocean and African rhythms.

* Fatoumata Diawara: With an intense but gentle stage presence and catchy, lilting songs, Diawara is the latest strong female Wassalou voice to emerge from Mali’s diverse, lively music scene.

* Kayhan Kalhor and Erdal Erzincan: Two masters in their own right join forces for virtuosic, riveting improvisations based on the shared melodies of Persian and Turkish classical forms. Kalhor’s evocative kamanche (spike fiddle) sails over the delicate yet vigorous textures of Erzincan’s baglama(long-necked lute).

* Martha Redbone Roots Project: With a soulful voice and intrepid spirit, Redbone focuses on her Native American and Appalachian roots, drawing on the stirring poems of William Blake and high lonesome sounds to shed new light on old ways.

* Mucca Pazza: A marching band that thinks it's a rock 'n roll band, a couple dozen mischievous performers – including high-jumping cheerleaders, anarchic horns, and helmet-amped guitarists – tear through originals inspired by the world’s marching band traditions and perfected in Chicago’s underground.

* Oliver Mtukudzi and the Black Spirits: Oliver, known affectionately as ‘Tuku,’ the venerable Afropop pioneer from Zimbabwe has remained a vital, ever-changing part of the African music scene, adored for his beautiful guitar work, rich and husky voice, and positive, uplifting message.

* Stooges Brass Band: Winners of the coveted "Best Contemporary Brass Band" at the Big Easy Music Awards, The Stooges have gained notoriety as a full-blown party band whether leading a second-line parade in the back streets of the Crescent City, collaborating with hip-hop, Cuban, Balkan, or South Asian bands, or performing at festivals across the country, including a guest appearance at globalFEST’s tent at Bonnaroo. The Stooges immerse crowds in a high-energy, cut loose vibe that draws from contemporary yet deeply rooted in the rich musical legacy of New Orleans.

GlobalFEST celebrates its 10th year on January 13, 2013 at NYC’s Webster Hall > GLOBALFEST.
