ArtPower at UC San Diego’s 2019–20 season will feature over 30 performances by internationally renowned artists with a special focus on modern Asian music.

Subscriptions went on sale this month for the new season, which will celebrate artistic and cultural diversity in chamber music, dance, global music and jazz.

The special Asian series opens on Nov. 5 with Dengue Fever, recognized for their blend of 1960s Cambodian pop and psychedelic rock.

In the spring, ArtPower celebrates the Hindu holiday of Holi with “the best party band in years,” Red Baraat Festival of Colors, which is known for merging hard driving North Indian bhangra with elements of hip-hop, jazz, and raw punk energy.
