Women of the World is a Boston-based
collective of women musicians. Hailing from Japan, India, Italy, Haiti, Mexico,
and the United States, the core singers and their eclectic band perform
original and traditional folk music in over 17 languages from across the globe.
Since 2008, the ensemble has received
accolades and collaborated with many renowned artists including Bobby McFerrin,
Angelique Kidjo, Mario Frangoulis, and
the Boston Pops Orchestra led by Maestro Keith Lockhart. With tours in Japan
and the North American region, including performances at the Blue Note Jazz
Club, Carnegie Hall, Boston’s Symphony Hall, and features at the Beantown Jazz
Festival, TEDxBoston and United Nations events, Women of the World continues to
spread the message of peace and unity through music.
Women of the World was born from a dream
to bring women musicians from across the globe onto a common creative platform.
Women who not only work and perform together, but who learn from each other,
exploring each other’s culture, language, food and traditions by interacting
closely on a daily basis.
