Lotus World Music and Arts Festival

Lotus World Music and Arts Festival is annually held in Bloomington, Indiana in September. It features arts and music from around the world. According to their website, it's one of the oldest world music festival in the US. More than 12,000 people come during the 4-5 days of the festival.

We didn't actually go to the music concert itself. Instead, we just walked around downtown Bloomington and enjoyed some street performers. Here is a group of musicians playing Zimbabwean music. They were playing Marimba. Marimba is a percussion instrument with wooden bars and resonators attached to them.





There are also local people performing their music. Here is a girl playing violin.
