Program Description

At the San Francisco World Music Festival, we believe that music has the power to transform people. There is a simple beauty in music connecting with its listener for the first time. In our 18 years of creating stage productions, we’ve discovered that this connection not only can inspire people to explore their own potential, but even inspire change for the greater good. Change that can revive centuries-old traditions, fuel developing economies, and educate young people. This is why we thrive.
