Meet Women of the World

Women of the World is an international vocal ensemble led by eight innovative women representing Japan, Italy, India, Mexico, and the United States of America. The ensemble is living proof that different cultures can coexist in harmony and that the world is more powerful when united.

Combining original compositions with unique arrangements of traditional folk music, Women of the World performs a vast repertoire including Bulgarian, Ladino, Italian, Brazilian, African, Middle Eastern, Indian and Japanese music intertwined with spontaneous improvisation and a cappella interludes.

Since 2008, Women of the World has created a stir on the world music scene, receiving support from renowned artists such as Grammy-award winning maestro, Bobby McFerrin. In 2010, they shared the stage with the iconic African vocalist, Angelique Kidjo. In March 2011, they made their New York debut at the prestigious Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall.

Having supported various causes including fundraisers for disaster victims of Haiti, Pakistan and Japan, Women of the World is now gearing up for a world tour in 2012.
