¡Globalquerque! Preview at UNM
We are happy to be working with ASUNM Student Special Events to bring a taste of ¡Globalquerque! to the UNM campus. Our first collaboration will be to present a free lunchtime concert with Diné performers Sihasin outside the Student Union Building on Friday, September 20 at noon. Everyone is welcome, so if you are free at lunchtime, come join the students and kick off your ¡Globalquerque! weekend. Sihasin will perform at ¡Globalquerque! on Saturday night.
This year's poster artist—Julianna Kirwin—will be on KUNM's Afternoon Freeform with Carol Boss on Wednesday, September 18 sometime after 2 PM. Julianna will talk about the original piece she created for ¡Globalquerque! ("Journey of the Accordion") that captures the history and travels of the accordion from Europe across the globe. She'll play accordion music that is the inspiration for parts of the piece and for accordion stories that she has captured in a series of small, handmade books. You might want to be looking at the poster during the show!
Diné rockers Sihasin will be live in the studeio with Katie Stone and the rest of the crew on KUNM's Children's Hour, Saturday, September 21 at 9 AM. It's always a party on the Children's Hour. Since Sihasin often expands to a multigenerational band, they should fit right in.
Artists and businesses throughout the community have donated all kinds of great objects that we will be auctioning off at the festival. Check them out on our auction page, where you can even start the bidding process early! Proxy bids will be accepted through Sept. 19; the auction will close on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 10 PM at ¡Globalquerque!
