BD&P World Music


This year’s BD&P World Music series is as eclectic and intimate as ever, taking you on a world tour from Cuba, the Balkans, and the U.S. to Ireland and India.

Let the motion of emotion flow through you with deep performances by femme folk trio I’m With Her. Then stand up for that toe-tapping, hand-clapping rhythm in your bones with the lively Goran Bregović’s Wedding and Funeral Band. Continue the world tour with the story of migrant hardships in Celtic Nights – Oceans of Hope, and the soul-stirring Afro-pop of Habib Koité, Bassekou Kouyate and the famed Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Let that rhythm move your body as we’re joined by one of the most prestigious dance companies in the world with Cuba Vibra! Finally, settle down with a true virtuoso on the sitar, Anoushka Shankar.

There will be dancing!

With the unwavering support of Burnet, Duckworth & Palmer LLP, our World Music series engages both traditional musicians and new World Music talent to perform on stage in the Jack Singer Concert Hall. This long-standing series gives Calgarians the opportunity to travel the musical world and experience this eclectic and ever evolving art form.
