Carnegie Hall Presents

World Views

Super-charged music from three continents performed by the most unique traditional musicians in the world make this series an essential. South Africa’s Madala Kunene performs with his quintet and Phuzekhemisi brings singers and dancers to share heartfelt interpretations of maskandi music, or “Zulu blues.” Dizu Plaatjies and his group Ibuyambo perform the vibrant music of various ethnic groups of South Africa, while vocalist Lucilla Galeazzi brings the folk music of Italy to life with her ensemble. The series ends with a group of remarkable musicians from Afghanistan, India, and Tajikistan, who capture the exuberant energy of the 16th century Mughal court.
