My boyfriend got wonderful photos of Global Union this year!! Go check out the link above and like his page. This was my first time going to Global Union and it was amazing!!! We got to watch some real talent.
La Yegros was a sexy and fun sounding band. Their female vocal was delightful and funny, she also had amazing fashion sense. They were a mix of electric instruments and old Latin flavor.
Wu Force is an “Avant-garde Appalachian-Chinese folk trio”. I would have to say that they were my favorite part of Global Union. I loved their mix of almost Celtic sounding vibes with the Chinese harp.
Kobo Town is Alternative Calypso. They caused everyone to get up and dance! It was amazing to see so many different kinds of people dancing together. Things really got swinging when Calypso Rose joined Kobo Town. She was so cute and funny. She made jokes with the crowd and had an amazing ability to get everyone pumped up.
The last group was Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars. They were also amazing! Their drums and vocals really stood out. At the end of their set they asked for everyone to donate to stop the spread of Ebola in their home country.
The best part of Global Union was just the feeling of freedom. People brought their kids and dogs. The food was amazing, and so were the handcrafted items. It was an experience that I will never forget!
