Global Union 2013
Artists from Sierra Leone, Pakistan, Canada and Milwaukee itself provided the soundtrack to Alverno Presents' annual world music fest.
Global Union wrapped up its eighth year with much fanfare and as usual, world-class music. This year, four music acts hit the stage with high energy, spirituality and deep history.
Global Union is held yearly by Alverno Presents on the grassy hill and bandshell of Humboldt Park. People camped out on the field with their family, friends and dogs. The atmosphere was relaxing, with many eyes shut, feeling the late summer air and enthralled in the music. The outstanding music itself makes the case as to why Global Union is one of the most popular music festivals in the city.
