Madison World Music Festival is coming up Thurs Sept 13th — sep. 15th At the Memorial Union Strong emphasis on Gypsy music (Isthmus recommends Dhoad Gypsies from Rajistan, incl. dancers)
A must-visit event, no excuses!!


In its fourth year the festival again brings extraordinary artists from all over the world for free performances on the Terrace, in the Wisconsin Union Theater, at the Willy St. Fair and possibly in other venues. This year, we present a Rom (Gypsy) showcase with three bands (NY Gypsy All-Stars, Romano Drom and Dhoad Gypsies) presenting three different styles of Romani music. The showcase will also include workshops by the artists and a lecture by professor Margaret Beissinger. Stiltwalking puppeteers Dragon Knights will add to the festivities and the sensational Dobet Gnahore, who performed in the theater last season, will wow the audience at the Willy St. Fair.
