Each fall, musicians from around the globe come to Chicago for the annual World Music Festival, a free concert series that takes place at music venues all over the city. This year's lineup is packed with globally recognized names, including Ethiopian jazz legend Mulatu Astatke, Afrobeat drummer Pat Thomas and 77-year-old Brazilian singer Dona Onete. Other highlights include a 15-hour marathon of classical Indian music at the Chicago Cultural Center on September 9 and the 606 Polyrhythmic Procession and Global Peace Picnic, which will bring music and a parade to Humboldt Park on September 18.
