Roots, Theater + Dance

Lotus World Music & Arts Festival

When: Sept. 22-25 2011

Our favorite way to close out the summer, Bloomington’s Lotus Festival offers an exemplary mix of music for both dance and contemplation in a variety of venues ranging from outdoor tents to church sanctuaries. Obviously the tents are for dancing, with beats provided by, depending on the year, Balkan dance bands, American old-school funk acts or Afro-beat ensembles. And seated audiences can (say) catch an ecstatic Iraqi acoustic act just before a solo Armenian singer, followed by a Corsican a cappella quartet.

Price: Ticket options vary
