The Women of the World ensemble consists of 16 Berklee students who came together two years ago in an attempt to bridge cultural and language boundaries through the power of music. Representing Japan, India, Greece, Brazil, Italy, the Czech Republic, Korea, the Dominican Republic, the United States of America, and Mexico, the group believes in using music to bring about positive social change.

Founded by Ayumi Ueda (Japan), The group is led by five main vocalists: Ayumi Ueda, founder and director; Ali Rapetti; Giorgia Renosto; Katerina Polemi; and Annette Philip. They perform folk, traditional, and original music inspired by the diverse cultures they represent.
