Join us for a celebration of music cultures from around the world at the inaugural Los Angeles Global Music Festival!
Co-produced by the Resonance Collective and Numinous Music, immerse yourself in performances and workshops featuring a rich tapestry of global music traditions, all converging in the heart of Los Angeles. The Inuit soul group Pamyua, known for their traditional songs and drum dances of the Yup’ik, headline the launch of this brand-new annual event. Los Angeles-based Brazilian artist Caro Pierotto opens the concert performing original songs from her new album Sambalismo, inspired by her Brazilian roots.
