The Center for World Music is proud to co-produce the 5th Annual Harmony and Motion International Music & Dance Festival. On September 18–20th, the Worldview Project, The Center for World Music, and San Diego Civic Dance Arts will celebrate the exquisite diversity of music and dance in San Diego. Blending live music by professional and highly skilled amateur musicians with talented dancers, the festival offers a world tour of exciting and enchanting music and dance that will delight your ears, eyes, and soul. This year’s Harmony and Motion Festival has been expanded to three days, in celebration of Balboa Park’s Centennial Celebration of the Panama-California Exposition. The festival kicks off with a special tribute to Balboa Park with presentations by park notables.
The performance line-up includes several CWM ensembles-in-residence including Kembang Sunda, Yale Strom and Hot Pstromi, Nos de Chita, and Sene Africa. On Sunday, Garit Imhoff, teaching artist for the World Music in the Schools program, will be hosting a free workshop on the Zimbabwean karimba mbira. Instruments will be provided.
There are three different performances, Friday evening, Saturday afternoon, and Saturday evening. Admission for each performance is $20 ($10 for students); a festival pass for all three performances is $50 ($25 for students). Workshops on Sunday are free.
