Global Fest: Afro-Cuban Ensemble
The Afro-Cuban Ensemble draws on drumming, dancing and singing traditions from Cuba to create music-driven by infectious grooves and joyful melodies.
Now in its fourth year, Global Fest is the annual festival of students, teachers, alumni and guest performers in the Global Music degree programme at the Sibelius Academy. The festival celebrates cultural diversity and builds bridges for intercultural communication, understanding and collaboration through music and the arts in general.
This year, the festival takes place from 11 to 13 December and features performers from Aruba, Australia, Brazil, Catalonia, China, Finland, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Greece, Nepal, Senegal, Serbia, Spain and Tanzania.
