Think globally, act locally. That is the thought behind the first-annual "Chicago Global Warming Party," which is sure to turn up the heat with some worldly beats at The Morse Theatre in Rogers Park on Tuesday, Feb. 24 at 8PM. This special showcase is being curated by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs to bring the city's top international music acts to the forefront.
The concert will feature Steve Gibons' Gypsy Rhythm Project featuring Romanian Gypsy cimbalom (a type of dulcimer) maestro Nicolae Feraru, Fandanguero and the Occidental Brothers Dance Band International. The diverse world music styles range from the jazz and gypsy folk music of the Steve Gibons' Gypsy Rhythm Project to the Peruvian San Jarocho beats of Fandanguero to the Central and West African dance music played by the Occidental Brothers. All of the musical acts are based in Chicago.
Tickets for the "Chicago Global Warming Party" are $10 and can be purchased on the Morse Theatre Web site.
