Enjoy a Sampling of World Music’s Up and Comming Talent @ Berklee’s 24th Annual International Folk Music Festival
Now in its 24th year, this year the Berklee College of Music’s International Folk Music Festival will feature student and faculty performers from all corners of the globe including the Bahamas, Brazil, Bulgaria, Columbia, the Czech Republic, France, India, Italy, Mexico, Russia, and the United States. The audience will experience world culture in the form of costumes, ethnic instruments, and , of course, music of diverse genres in many styles which, by the way, promises to be both emotionally and physically invigorating to its listener’s. This event is in effect a celebration of the highly international character of Berklee’s student and faculty population. About a quarter of the student body is from other countries! During the evening, there will also be honors bestowed upon two of the local community’s top international music ambassadors. Violinist Simon Shaheen, originally of Palestine, and musician/composer, Joosek Kim of the republic of South Korea will be recognized this year for their immense efforts in supporting those students who have come to Berklee from other parts of the world in order to advance their music studies. Come on out and support our next generation of world music artists.
