Among the definitions of "global," the Oxford Dictionary lists "relating to or embracing a group of items, etc.; total." It's an apt description of World Village Fest, which is about as "global" as it gets with dozens of dance, music, storytelling, poetry, film, art and food events, all of which take place over three days at Capitol Park in downtown Boise. Presented by Global Lounge, World Village Fest will be a small world after all with dozens of multinational performing groups showcasing the full range of Idaho's diverse communities. From Afro-pop, Americana and Basque folk; to East Indian dance, flamenco and klezmer; to Native American drum and singing, Turkish and Iranian music, and the Zack Quintana Band's blues rock, it's the dictionary definition of diversity—from A to Z.
