¡Globalquerque!—HPPR at New Mexico's Global Music Festival

Oct 14, 2017

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.
