The program will also feature performances of Pete Townshend's "Baba O’Riley," Islam Chipsy's "Zaghlala," N. Rajam's "Dadra in Raga Bhairavi," Konono N°1's "Kule Kule," Yevgeniy Sharlat's "pencil sketch," Fodé Lassana Diabaté's "Nana Triban" from "Sunjata’s Time," Nicole Lizée's "Another Living Soul," Rhiannon Giddens' "At the Purchaser's Option," Aleksandra Vrebalov's "My Desert, My Rose," Tanya Tagaq's "Sivunittinni," Mario Galeano Toro's "Microsurco de Liebre," and Terry Riley's "Good Medicine" from "Salome Dances for Peace."
