We've assembled some of the year's highlights in video, including a rare appearance by legendary Ethiopian pop singer Mahmoud Ahmed to an audience of over 800, "maximalist" icon Charlemagne Palestine's first-ever organ concert in New York, new commissions by Pat Spadine's Ashcan Orchestra and Artist-In-Residence devynn emory, and excerpts from international festivals Tectonics, Ultima, and Unsound.
