Global Roots Events

The Cedar’s mission is to promote intercultural appreciation and understanding through the presentation of global music and dance. Our Global Roots program is directly tied to that mission, and every year, we bring more than 50 global acts to our stage. In any given month, you’ll find artists from around the world here at The Cedar.
