City Slang: Global Fridays from February



The Arab American National Museum in Dearborn will be hosting Global Fridays from February 8.

First up will be the Michigan premier of Italian traditional music and dance band Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino. March 22 will see finger-style acoustic guitarist Glenn Jones’ first area show in five years.

They say, “The season lineup features the traditional Italian music and dance troupe Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino making their Michigan premiere at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, 2013, as they prepare for their appearance at the prestigious SXSW Music Festival in March and a U.S. tour in June and July. “The best guitarist you never heard of” and the king of the American Primitive guitar style, Glenn Jones makes his first area appearance in five years at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 22, 2013. Rounding out the season is up-and-coming NYC-based solo artist Saadi (7:30 p.m. Friday, April 5, 2013), who rocked the opening concert of the 2012 Fall Global Fridays season as part of Janka Nabay and the Bubu Gang, and those fine, funky, award-winning musical mélange masters from Chicago, Funkadesi (7:30 p.m. Friday, May 10, 2013).”

“Since 2005, the multicultural Global Fridays performance series – a sister series to the annual summer Concert of Colors world music festival in Midtown Detroit – has offered high-quality musical and spoken-word presentations for fans of traditional and world music and those with adventurous cultural tastes.”
