Women Of The World

Event Date: 
Friday, January 17, 2014 - 8:00pm
Venue: 

Women of the World is an international world music ensemble currently based in Boston. What started out as a dream four years ago, has become a real musical force. Ayumi Ueda, a Berklee College of Music alumnus from Japan, sought to create an ensemble of women from all over the world to create music for peace. In 2008, Ayumi joined forces with like-minded musicians, Giorgia Renosto from Italy, Annette Philip from India, and Débòrah Pierre from USA/Haiti in order to manifest this vision.

Complemented by an eclectic band currently featuring Hinako Sato (piano), Noriko Terada (percussion) and Kazuyo Kuriya (flute) from Japan, Sara Cristal Peña Coffin (bass) from Mexico, and Sue Buzzard (violin) and Shirazette Tinnin (drums) from the United States of America, this unique ensemble of women musicians delighted in sharing the beauty of different cultures and what that cross-pollination sounded like in music.

Each of the ten women has a strong artistic identity shaped by the culture in which she grew up, and each finds endless excitement in learning and exploring the many cultures of the world. The unique music which stems forth from this mixture of artistry has created for a sound which is all its own - borderless, spirited, and carrying the undeniable message of unity.  womenoftheworldmusic.com
