SacWorldFest: world music and dance, Sunday, a set on Flickr.SacWorldFest: Sacramento World Music and Dance Festival, October 6th and 7th 2012
Sunday: many stages, with music and dancing from all over the world. Folk and tango, bellydancing and reggae, jazz and storytelling and bells-on-your-feet. These are just a few samples.
I particularly enjoyed the folk bands Masters of the Midway and One-Eye Reilly (I think that's what they were called--their fiddle player was quite amazing); the very-animated Brazilian-style dancers; Gopal Slavonic and his flamenco guitar; the Bolivia Corazon de Americas; Z'Amico and Urban Fire. You needed to be in three or four places at the same time to see and hear everything, so I'm sure I missed something... better go back again next year. And of course, this all happened in Old Sacramento, one of my favourite places, just-another Western town complete with cowboys, Indians, and rails to hitch your horse while you're visiting the saloon.
