The 24th annual Chico World Music Festival took place on campus, Saturday.

Every year, the festival brings together a variety of musical acts to showcase sounds and styles from all over the world to the Chico community. The event also celebrates multicultural food and art.

 

International voices and instruments continued to be represented at the event. A group from Chile, Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna, began their 12-day American tour here at Chico State and will continue around the country.

Balkalicious Fire Drive performed a mix of Balkan music and rock.

Pat Hull, who teaches for the Public Speaking Department on campus, performed with his folk/alternative rock band in the Arts building.

Sitar Trek combined classic Indian sitar with funk and jazz themes.

The festival also featured food stands, including Filipino and Indian offerings, and local sellers of handmade gifts and art.
