Last Night of globalFEST’s Tiny Desk Series Live Tonight, Conference Next Week

If you haven’t tuned in yet, you’ve still got one more night to watch the globalFEST-Tiny Desk series live. Watch Al Bilali Soudan from Mali, Kiran Ahluwalia with music from the Indian subcontinent and Tufan Derince’s Kurdish music tonight via YouTube starting at 8 pm. The festivities are hosted by our good friend, Angeliqué Kidjo.

If you missed the previous two nights, you can binge them whenever you’re ready from NPR Music’s YouTube page. Night One is here and night two is here. Music industry types will want to get their tickets to the Wavelengths: Global Music Conference, which happens online next week.

It's maybe not the festival we, or its planners, were expecting, but it remains a pretty fantastic pivot that we get to see the artists in such an intimate setting from the comfort of our own homes.
