“an evening you`ll remember for the rest of your lives.”
-Jeff Tamarkin, Global Rhythm

“Globe-hopping was as easy as an elevator ride for the sold-out crowd at GlobalFest…The music reflected an interconnected world in which ethnographic purity is giving way to multicultural fusions, though a cultural heritage often shines through the international trappings.”
-Jon Pareles, New York Times

“GlobalFEST proved it`s possible to respect the past without being forced to preserve it forever unchanged.”
-Carol Cooper, Village Voice

“The world-music aisle of your local record store comes to life.”
-John Donohue, New Yorker
