Women of the World
Part of the Peace Passport Field Trip Series
Women of the World perform original compositions and folk music in over 17 languages from across the globe. Hailing from Japan, Italy, India, and Haiti, the ensemble is constantly searching for new genres to explore. The group has performed Bulgarian, Cuban, Ladino, Brazilian, African, Indian, and Japanese traditional music, while incorporating their own spontaneous improvisation and a cappella interludes. Women of the World cultivate a message of peace and unity that inspires not only the ensemble itself, but their fast-growing audience, as it spreads awareness of many different musical genres, cultures, and philosophies.
