GlobalFEST's Creole Carnival

You've got to have a Brazilian band on hand to celebrate Carnivale, and City Winery Chicago has one of the best, samba kings Casuarina, ready to shake things up as part of GlobalFEST's Creole Carnival tour. But Haiti and Jamaica have also been known to let loose with their own cultural twists on the pre-Lenten party, and that's where Emeline Michel and Brushy One String come in. Michel blends her Haitian beats and melodies with a message of equality and hope, while Brushy's singular sound mixes reggae, soul and hip hop.
