Mark your calendars for Friday, September 20 and Saturday, September 21 and make plans to attend ¡Globalquerque! 2019. This annual fiesta of song celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2019. ¡Globalquerque! features local vendors, delicious foods, films, and of course, regional and international musical acts. The weekend promises to be a fun-filled, family friendly celebration for locals and visitors alike.
¡Globalquerque! Film, Food, and Artisan Wares
The Global Village at ¡Globalquerque! features craft vendors, native arts and crafts, and delicious foods. Approximately 30 booths on site create a celebration of local Hispanic and Latino culture, with something for every preference. Food is available until closing each evening, with craft booths selling their wares until 8 pm.
¡Globalquerque! is also featured during the month-long free International Cinema Series, presented in partnership with the National Hispanic Cultural Center, which hosts the film festival. Films from around the world will be screened for audiences of all ages.
Music at ¡Globalquerque!
Local and international musical acts will fill the air with music. Natu Camara from Guinea is featured as one of the musical highlights. In 2006, she led West Africa’s first all-female hip-hop group, The Ideal Black Girls, and is known as “the beloved rap queen”.
Other acts include one of the hardest-working touring reggae acts in North America, The Itals; an Electro Arabic Dabke (Shamstep) band formed in Amman, Jordan, 47SOUL; and Carlos Medina from Las Vegas, New Mexico. Considered “The Face of Angola Afro-Pop/World Music,” Vivalda Dula will have audience members on their feet with her danceable mix of music and socially conscious messaging.
