Normally globalFEST is a bright event in the cold dead of winter,
and while this year still isn’t “normal,” the presenters managed to team
up with NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts for a very cool video series of very cool artists. If you’re looking for a silver lining, you
don’t even have to brave a frigid January night to see it-- you can
just hit play right here:
Hosted by none other than Angelique Kidjo, it’s a lineup that would’ve been the highlight of any January. Watch at your leisure, sitting or even lying down, pausing whenever you want, enjoying these intimate performances for their particular charm, confident that health officials are saying live concerts might be possible as soon as this fall.
