Women of the World
“...excellent ...with striking lead vocals.” – New York Times
Wednesday, Mar. 20, 7:30 p.m.
Kennedy Union Ballroom
Winners of the 2017 International Championship of A Cappella Open at Carnegie Hall, this quartet brings together women of Japanese, Indian, Haitian, and Italian heritage. Their sound—and message—is globally inspired and inspiring.
Mentored by the Grammy-award winning Bobby McFerrin, Women of the World performs original and traditional folk music with a contemporary twist, in 32 languages. Since 2008, the quartet has journeyed through the music of Africa, South America, Asia and Europe, presenting audiences an exhilarating experience through chants, story telling, dance, percussion, and improvisation. This is a cappella at its most compelling. Check the website in early 2019 for details about workshops for community ensembles.
