The Preview Show to End All (World Musicky) Preview Shows -
With lots of ticket giveaways!

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments


Thanks to a rare conference/festival convergence, a slew of superb multi-artist multi-culti musical events are coming to NYC. There's the annual Balkan music-lover's bacchanal Golden Fest Friday and Saturday January 15th and 16th. There's globalFEST, the annual 3-stage 12-artist world music extravaganza at Webster Hall on Sunday January 17th. AND there are a slew of bountiful showcases in the coming days that, like globalFEST, are pegged to the annual APAP arts presenter's conference. It's a world musicky fest-a-geddon! We'll whet your appetite with preview tracks by artists playing globalFEST and other big showcases. We'll play music WFMU recorded at Golden Fest 2015 c/o the Free Music Archive. (A week from tonight we'll once again broadcast live from Golden Fest.) And - we'll have ticket giveaways for some of the big shows!
