An annual Madison cultural event celebrating music revels in a decade of the jubilee this year.
Madison World Music Festival organizers said the three-day event, scheduled Sept. 19-21 at the Memorial Union and Willy Street Fair, is in its 10th year. The festival is presented by the Wisconsin Union Directorate Performing Arts Committee in collaboration with the Willy Street Fair.
Organizers said the festival will include music from many parts of the world, workshops, and opportunities to dance, all for free.
Of special note this year is the number of women performing and leading bands -- of the 11 bands presented, only two are all-male, according to the Wisconsin Union Directorate Performing Arts Committee.
