Thank you for visiting our website!
I am thrilled to have had such a strong year bringing you so many world music events! In addition to our regular nights at AVA Lounge, Global Beats was part of two major festivals in Pittsburgh: World Music Day at the Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival and the Allegheny County Global Diversity Fest. Many thanks to the organizers for including world music and international programming as they present music in outdoor settings for whole families to enjoy. We had a blast! The artists featured were:
-Jontre – Colombia
- Red Baraat – India
- Los Amigos Invisibles – Venezuela
Global Beats also partnered with Opus Productions and other presenters in our area in audience outreach and marketing. Together we grew and diversified audiences and had a great time doing so! Highlights include the following productions: Toots and the Maytals, Bajofondo, The Afro-Cuban All Starts, Mutantes, Diego Garcia, Matuto and Bombino.
In 2014, Global Beats completes its 10th anniversary. Let’s celebrate! We begin the new year with a special night at Enigma Lounge during the Cultural District Gallery Crawl Night on January 24th! Bring your friends and enjoy music from around the world starting at 9 pm. We got some salsa, samba, reggae, bossa nova, zouk, bhangra, belly dancing and cumbias……
Also, I have accepted the position of International Music Director at WRCT 88.3 FM in 2014. Please email me suggestions for world music or just say hi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
