Boston-based international folk music ensemble Women of the World makes its Blue Note debut this afternoon! Hot off the heels of its tour of Japan, this 10-member all-female ensemble, representing Japan, India, Italy, Mexico, and the United States, will officially release its debut EP Koloro at today's show.
Founded in 2008, Women of the World was the brainchild of Japanese vocalist Ayumi Ueda, a Berklee College of Music alumna, who dreamt of bringing women from across the globe onto a common creative platform. Over the years, the band has received accolades and collaborated with many industry bigwigs, including Bobby McFerrin, Angelique Kidjo, Mario Frangoulis, and the Boston Pops Orchestra led by maestro Keith Lockhart. With a slate of past performances at venues like Carnegie Hall and Boston's Symphony Hall and Agganis Arena, and a collaboration with the United Nations, Women of the World continues to spread its message of peace and unity through music.
