Women of the World was formed to bring women musicians from across the globe onto a common platform to collaborate and create, not only through the sharing of music, but also to explore and celebrate the differences in ideologies, and cultural tenets that exist in the daily lives of women all over the world. The 10-piece core ensemble performs a varied repertoire of folk and traditional music, currently in 17 of the world’s languages.
With tours in Japan and North America, including performances at the Blue Note Jazz Club, Carnegie Hall, Boston Symphony Hall, BeanTown Jazz Festival, TEDxBoston, and United Nations events, Women of the World strives to support and engage in peace building efforts, including local and global movements that help foster unity amidst the rich diversity that surrounds us.
On February 25th, Women of the World will premier their latest multi-art production, “Koloro” at the Berklee Performance Center with 92 performers from all over the world. From Tango dancers, Indian alaaps, and African Calabash drumming, to body and mouth percussion, experimental a cappella and dance works, we pay tribute to the myriad colors in nature, culture and life.
