    Introduction

    “A decidedly edgier, more forward-looking new direction.”  
    — THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
    Building off the momentum of WORLD MUSIC INSTITUTE's acclaimed 2016-17 season, which boasted a record number of sold-out shows, WMI announces an ever-expansive 2017-18 program: over 40 performances by remarkable talents from 28 countries across six continents. The New York Times reports on the new season here.

    World music is constantly redefining itself, expanding into new territories as well as preserving tradition. It is no longer a niche category, but a genre that is phenomenally popular, attracting new, young and diverse audiences. Under the leadership of Executive Director Gaby Sappington and Artistic Director Par Neiburger since 2014, World Music Institute presents a passionately curated picture of world music to New Yorkers, expanding its vision from presenting the best in traditional music from around the world to also being on the forefront of new and exciting trends. The result is a program that offers access to traditionalists, experimentalists—and those in between. 

    In recent years, World Music Institute has established an impressive number of new partnerships with venues from the venerated to the alternative, spreading its wings all over the city and even upstate NY. Venues range from intimate spaces such as Littlefield and The David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center to large-scale stages like BAM Opera House, Apollo Theater and The Town Hall.

    Read on for details of the 2017-18 season, which includes three exciting new series: Festival of Mali,  Voces De Las Mujeres and Contemporary Jewish.
    Artistic Director PAR NEIBURGER on the new season:
    “In my third season as Artistic Director for World Music Institute, we move even further with the programmatic vision that we began in the 2015-16 season: presenting a distinctly wide range of what the global music community has to offer. We will present artists that range from the traditional (Toumani Diabaté & Sidiki Diabaté, Wu Man) to the contemporary and avant-garde (Tanya Tagaq, Yasmine Hamdan); from lesser-known artists often giving their first performance in the United States or New York (Anewal and Mdou Moctar) to legendary masters (Hugh Masekela and Hariprasad Chaurasia) and well-established artists (Mariza and Seun Kuti & Egypt 80). We are honored to present what will be the 32nd concert season for this venerable institution that long ago established its significance in the cultural community. Through our programming and community building, we aim to bring this institution into new territory—and consider it our distinct privilege to do so.”
