GLOBAL VOICES UNITED
Women of the World was born from a dream to bring female musicians from across the globe onto a common platform to explore sounds and rhythms from a vast array of cultures. Hailing from Italy, Japan, Haiti, and India, this award-winning a cappella quartet performs folk and traditional music, often with a contemporary twist, in 31 of the world's languages. The unique music that stems from this cross-pollination of genres and global sounds is borderless and spirited, carrying an undeniable message of unity. Women of the World has collaborated with many renowned musicians, including African vocal icon Angelique Kidjo and Grammy Award-winning vocalist Bobby McFerrin who called them “beautiful, spirited, loving…wonderful.” They have also spread their musical message of peace with performances at esteemed venues such as the Blue Note Jazz Club, Carnegie Hall, Boston Symphony Hall, and the Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival.
