(great endorsement!) - Aug 4, 2009

"Seattle's venerable Bumbershoot, Texas' Austin City Limits and Chicago's adventurous Chicago World Music festival are all must-see, destination events for serious music lovers. While smaller regional "microfestivals," like Bloomington, Indiana's Lotus festival and New Mexico's Globalquerque! festival give the big boys a run for their money. [...] Another great regional "microfestival" that punches far above its weight, New Mexico's Globalquerque! festival offers some of the most adventurous world music programming set against one of the Southwest's most beautiful cities . Now in its fifth year, the festival is becoming a destination in its own right." - "2009 Fall Festival Roundup: Nat Geo Music Handicaps The Best Of This Falls Festivals" by Tom Pryor, Sept 1, 2009.
