Women of the World Present Koloro

Monday / February 25, 2013 / 8:15 p.m.
Berklee Performance Center
136 Massachusetts Avenue
Boston
MA
United States
02115

Women of the World was born from a dream to bring women musicians from across the globe onto a common creative platform, women who not only work and perform together, but who learn from each other, exploring each other’s culture, language, food, and traditions by interacting closely on a daily basis.

Currently a 10-piece all-female ensemble, Women of the World performs a vast and varied repertoire of folk and traditional music in more than 17 of the world's languages. Since its beginnings in 2008, the ensemble has received accolades and collaborated with many industry bigwigs, including Grammy Award-winning vocalist Bobby McFerrin and African vocal icon Angelique Kidjo. With performances at the Blue Note Jazz Club, Carnegie Hall, Boston Symphony Hall, the Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival, TEDxBoston, and United Nations events, Women of the World continues to spread the message of peace and unity through music. 
 
For its spring concert, Women of the World will present Koloro, a multi-art production paying tribute to the myriad colors in nature, culture, and life. The word "koloro" (meaning color) was specifically chosen from the language Esperanto, which was created in the late 1800s to foster international peace and understanding as a common language for all. The concert will also showcase a World Peace Choir consisting of more than 50 women musicians from different countries. From lush choral arrangements, to body and mouth percussion, to experimental a cappella works, Koloro promises to be an evening of celebration.
