A virtuosic Turkish vocalist, Gypsy music and dance, and a funky brass band

Here with another round of streaming audio, mp3s, and videos for 3 more featured artists at globalFEST 2011:

Mustafa Özarslan – virtuosic Turkish vocalist makes his US debut with Sufi-inspired sounds, while breaking ethnic and generational boundaries performing a Kurdish and Armenian repertoire

Rhythm of Rajasthan – music and dance from the Great Thar Desert weaving together Roma roots, India’s diversity, and the rich journey of the Gypsies

Red Baraat – NYC-based funky brass band uses improvisation to unite Northern India and Pakistan’s favorite drum with some serious Sousaphone and Bollywood classics

The festival is just over a month away (January 9th, New York City’s Webster Hall).
