WORLD MUSIC WEEKEND FESTIVAL CELEBRATES FOURTH YEAR

Posted by Billyjam, June 1, 2007 07:47am | Post a Comment

In case you haven't already clicked on the link on Amoeba's homepage to the fourth annual World Music Weekend Festival happening over the next couple of days in Berkeley, here's the dealio. It's a really cool unique weekend (June 2 & 3) global music festival that runs from noon til 9PM both days and features a rich wide range of artists playing music from all corners of the earth. And best of all, it's FREE! In all there will be 28 acts performing such diverse genres as Cajun and Zydeco, North African, Middle Eastern, 1930's Tex Mex, and Balkan. The performances will happen on street corners, in cafes, and in People's Park, where Amoeba Music will present a concert with performances from the Congolese dance music ensemble Samba Ngo, plus Yasir Chadly, Bouchaib Abdelhabi, and Stephen Kent, who melds Moroccan traditions with didjeridu, and the always wonderful Brass Menazeri, whose specialty is brass music from both Serbia and the Greek/Macedonia region, all delivered via their unique instrumentation: trumpets, clarinets, trombone, and tuba.

For an exact lineup of artists performing and for full details click here, or simply, when you get to the event, pick up a printed free festival schedule at the information booth on Telegraph & Haste near Amoeba.
