Sat 2/4 9a:  The Children's Hour welcomed virtuoso oud musician, Rahim Alhaj who played music for us talked about living as a refugee. The KUNM Kids found out what makes a person flee their home country, and how Americans have traditionally embraced people escaping dangerous situations. 

On September 25th and 26th KUNM Production Director Roman Garcia and team headed to the National Hispanic Cultural Center in the Barelas neighborhood of Albuquerque for the 11th Annual Globalquerque! Festival of World Music and Culture.

  The five-hour live broadcast could not include full performances, and a few artists were left out entirely.

Not to worry, we still recorded everything from all three stages, so browse the audio files below (categorized by stage they performed on), click, and enjoy!
