The annual buffet of worldly sounds known as GlobalFEST returns to Webster Hall with the most diverse dozen acts you’ll see all year. This buzzing, schmoozy, triple-stage showcase introduces far-flung new names while reminding us of legacy performers — like true gypsy kings Fanfare Ciocarlia and Moroccan trance master Hassan Hakmoun — still delivering the goods. Flashy, Bollywood-inspired 11-piece The Bombay Royale and Jamaican guitar minimalist Brushy One String will make their local debuts alongside traditionalists, subversives, and everything in-between. Highlights include Congolese “rumba rapper” Baloji, Ukrainian post-punk folkies DakhaBrakha, Dutch-Antillean sampling synthesists Kuenta i Tambú, Daptone a cappella gospel trio The Como Mamas, Tucson-based mambo-neocumbia big band Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta, Mauritanian psych-folk siren Noura Mint Seymali, and Lebanese electropop chanteuse Yasmine Hamdan.
