Lensic Presents globalFEST On The Road: Creole Carnival, featuring Emeline Michel, Casuarina and Brushy One String.
Creole Carnival Tour honors the roots of African musical currents, crossed with a fusion of sounds from the Americas, and revolving around Carnival, the pre-Lent festival celebrated globally that’s everyone's favorite excuse for a party. globalFEST’s international trio of artists, will explore, expand, and upend notions of Carnival, without losing sight of where magic and religious fervor intersect with a madcap, no-holds-barred soiree.
From Brazil (Casuarina)—the superpower of celebration—to Haiti (Emeline Michel) and Jamaica (Brushy One String), each country has its own rich traditions for music, dancing, costumes, and cutting loose.
