World Fest Online Continues with Paulo Padilha e Bando

Since 2003, Arts Midwest World Fest has brought international musicians to communities throughout the Midwest. This year, when we can’t be with you in person, we’re still bringing music and culture from around the world to your screens as part of World Fest Online. Join us as we release videos featuring three incredible international music ensembles: Hadar Maoz (Israel), Paulo Padilha e Bando (Brazil), and Hikaru (Japan).
