On September 22nd, High Plains Public Radio headed over to Albuquerque, NM for one of the most inspirational music festivals in the US: ¡Globalquerque! This world music collective brings together global artists in a way no other festival does, with inspirational, soul-lifting performances. It takes place each year at the National Hispanic Cultural Center—an incredible space for a truly unique festival. 
Performances take place across three stages: the intimate courtyard setting of the Fountain Courtyard, the state of the art 692-seat Albuquerque Journal Theater, & dance outside on the Plaza Mayor. You can learn more about the Global Fiesta free Saturday daytime programming and the Global Village of Crafts, Culture and Cuisine.

Here are a few clips from the shows we attended:
