Featuring Bernard Woma, a Ghanaian master of the Dagara xylophone, the festival will include performances by the Ithaca College Steel Drum Band, Fife and Drum Ensemble, and Klezmorim.

The festival is being coordinated by Culture Link, a student organization striving to create a greater awareness and knowledge of many cultures through the sharing of ideas, resources, talents, and abilities. All events in the two-day festival are free, handicapped-accessible, and open to the public.

The schedule is as follows:
