Performances include music from Chachi Carvalho, Sidy Maiga and Oumou Sangaré, Nitin Mitta and Srinivas Reddy, Fidel Nadal, Natále, Nova One (Roz Raskin), Daniel Bernard Roumain, Becky Bass and emcee Lady J.
The film will also be available to stream on-demand for the holidays on the FirstWorks Virtual Stage here at firstworks.org.
