On 9 September the “Bright Music” company and Boris Grebenshchikov invite you to the annual “Parts of the World” Festival of World Music at the Yusupov Palace.

Its two stages will feature performances by world-famous musicians and simply virtuosi, representatives of the established school of performance and ground-breakers. British reggae, Tuareg blues, Irish fusion — the whole world is coming to St. Petersburg!

Those who attend the festival will be able to enjoy exotic cuisine, take part in musical and dance master-classes by well-known performers and stroll along the avenues of the World Market which will feature souvenirs, clothes, exotic musical instruments and much more besides.

The Artistic Director of the festival is Boris Grebenshchikov, known not only for his songs but also as the compere of the radio programme “Aerostat”, which acquaints Russians with the various musical cultures of the world. One of the festival’s highlights will be a programme prepared specially by Grebenshchikov.

The festival’s participants include: the Georgian group Mgzavrebi, Flook — an Irish project by Brian Finnegan, Terakaft — the most brilliant exponents of “Tuareg blues”, Manu Delago — the unsurpassed master of the exotic hang drum, The Beat and Ranking Roger, two of the most popular British ska groups, the folkrock project Yat-kha and the Mosalini-Grouet Duo, who are among today’s greatest masters of the tango.
