Scheduled to appear are Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara, flamenco funk-rockers La Shica (Madrid, Spain), Hungary's Roma Gypsy accordion man Parno Graszt, "pow wow" music DJs and audio-visual artists A Tribe Called Red (Canada), Christine Salem from the island of Reunion who sings Maloya music accompanied by kayanm (a percussion instrument) and French band Lo'Jo.

Also appearing will be Kayhan Kalhor and Erdal Erzincan, the Martha Redbone Roots Project, Mucca Pazza, La Santa Cecilia and Stephane Wrembel and His Band.
