Women of the World is a Boston-based international ensemble performing original and folk music from around the world, with a contemporary twist. Ayumi Ueda, a Berklee College of Music alumna from Japan, created a multicultural ensemble that not only crossed boundaries musically, but one that has committed to the ongoing practice of peace in their daily interactions. Ayumi joins forces with like-minded vocal artists, Giorgia Renosto from Italy, Annette Philip from India, and Débòrah Pierre from USA/Haiti to manifest this vision.
The four core vocalists perform as an a cappella quartet and also tour with a rotating line up of outstanding eclectic instrumentalists. Each of the musicians has a strong artistic identity shaped by the culture in which she grew up. Each finds endless excitement in learning and exploring the many cultures of the world. The unique music that stems forth from this cross-pollination of genres, rhythms and global sounds is thus borderless and spirited, carrying the undeniable message of unity.
The Women of the World repertoire is thus, vast and varied. Constantly searching for new genres to explore, the group has performed in 29 languages (and counting) including Bulgarian, Cuban, Ladino, Brazilian, Turkish, African, Indian and Japanese.
Through their work, Women of the World is creating a stir in the community, collaborating with renowned artists such as: Bobby McFerrin, Grammy-award winning vocalist and have shared stages with: Angelique Kidjo, African vocal icon; Mario Frangoulis, Greek classical artist; The Boston Pops Orchestra, maestro; Keith Lockhart, conductor.
