The Sierra Nevada World Music Festival promotes only "conscious"
music. "Conscious" music is music with a message of peace, unity and brotherhood
which transcends the divisions of race and culture. Each year, the Sierra Nevada World
Music Festival brings artists to Northern California that have rarely or never appeared in
the United States.

area and an extensive program of children's activities throughout the weekend - including
dance and music workshops, songfests, storytelling, arts and crafts, soccer games and
