What We’re Supporting This Week: Global Union


This weekend, get a last outdoor shimmy in at Bay View’s Humboldt Park with the worldly music of Global Union: from Pakistan to Sierra Leone, Montreal and Milwaukee, the folks at Alverno Presents have stretched their arms and ears wide to capture captivating sounds to bring together for one afternoon of musical enjoyment and substance. This Saturday, September 21st, 2013’s Global Union performances kick off at 12:30pm  with the relentless dance pop of Sierra Leone’s Janka Nabay and the Bubu Gang (stepping in for the originally-proposed Niger-based band, Tal National) and end with the soulful tonic of Milwaukee gospel legends, Masonic Wonders (in the above photo). After all, everyone’s world includes their own backyard, too, and a storied gospel band who have ties to the Chess Records, hold as much inspiration as the otherworldly, Sufi-istic celebrations of a group like Qawal Naimuddin Saifuddin & Brothers; immerse yourself in a new musical story from both near and far with us this Saturday.
