Event Preview: Landfall Festival of World Music 9/22-25, Sponsored by Little Village!

The Sway Machinery performs Saturday night at 8:30 p.m.

In its third year, this festival is looking better than ever, offering four days of free music that you simply will not find anywhere else in this area, probably ever again. From the mind-altering, polyphonic a capella of Corsican quartet Barbara Fortuna to the 12-piece Romanian gypsy punk of Mahala Rai Banda, and featuring Kenyan drum ensemble Kenge Kenge, dance music from Colombia’s Cimarrón and Brooklyn-based Nation Beat, Landfall is totally worth the trip up to CR this weekend.
