“Back in 2013 when we last hosted Global Rhythms the feedback we got was that the line up needed more women. Now, in 2016 with Emily Wurramara, Ajak Kwai, Gamibirra, Grace Barbé and the Miriam Lieberman Trio we’ve shown that we listen!” says Festival Director Tony Smythe. Special MC for the day will also be Canadian Haitian singer and Queen Kafé presenter Stéphanie Denizard aka Athésia.
Be sure to bring your appetite too as you’ll discover carefully selected food providers from different regions in the Middle East. Middle Eats founder Samir Ali explains “We’re hoping to showcase cuisine at Global Rhythms that mainstream hasn’t had access to before. Middle Eastern recipes that have been passed down through generations where food is an intrinsic part of the culture.”
