Special Summer Event: ¡Globalquerque! and the Folk Art Market present Festival au Desert: Caravan For Peace ConcertHeld in Mali for over a decade, The Festival au Desert has been cancelled as a result of civil war in that country. So, in 2013, instead of gathering in the Sahara, they are bringing the music of Mali out into the world. From soulful Malian Blues, to traditional trance-like nomadic music, to the intense, electric, modern sound of the Malian desert, this concert will be a stunning example of culture in motion, and an unforgettable opening for the 10th Annual International Folk Art Market. The concert will take place at the Lensic Theatre in Santa Fe on July 10 with featured performers Mamadou Kelly and the Ali Farka Toure Allstars, Tartit, and Imharhan. Tickets are on sale through TicketsSantaFe.org and the Lensic Box Office (505-988-1234).
