Women of the World is an international vocal ensemble currently based in Boston. What started out as a dream three years ago, has become a real musical force. Ayumi Ueda, a Berklee College of Music student from Japan sought to create an eclectic ensemble of women from all over the globe in order to create music for peace. In 2008, Ayumi joined forces with other Berklee students, Ali Rapetti from the United States, Katerina Polemi from Greece and Brazil, Giorgia Renosto from Italy, and Annette Philip from India in order to manifest this vision. From the group’s very beginning, the five core women delighted in sharing the beauty of different cultures and what that cross-pollination sounded like in music. Each of the five 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.
