Festival Story:

As the first festival of its kind in San Francisco, the San Francisco World Music Festival is where many facets of the world music community unite to present some of the most interesting music from around the Bay Area and the globe. Musicians, producers, studio engineers, radio hosts, ethnomusicologists, documentary filmmakers, music industry executives, etc. gather annually from many disciplines to discuss, perform, and analyze this music in a global context.
Evening World Music Concerts: In the fashion of many Eastern traditions- where musicians and audience collaborate intimately in an environment which does not depend on microphones, elaborate lighting, sound design, or visual stimulation; an environment where the subtle nuances woven into the music can be clearly heard and experienced; and where barriers between audience and performer are broken down. Scheduled at various venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
