Time: 7:30pm CDT October 3, 2019
Location: A. F. Siebert Chapel
Join us at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3 in A. F. Siebert Chapel for Women of the World. Women of the World is an all-female, international a cappella ensemble that performs original and traditional folk music with a contemporary twist in 32 languages.
This award-winning quartet journeys through the music of Africa, South America, Asia, and Europe through chants, storytelling, dance, percussion, and improvisation. The ensemble began in 2008 and features Ayumi Ueda, Annette Philip, Débo Ray, and Giorgia Renosto. They have since toured North America and Asia as musical ambassadors of peace and unity and received numerous awards and accolades, including the 2017 World Champions at the International A Cappella competition OPEN by Varsity Vocals at Carnegie Hall in NYC.
Past collaborations include Grammy Award-winning vocalist Bobby McFerrin and African vocal icon Angelique Kidjo.
Once described by the New York Times as “seamless, in six different languages”, Women of the World aims to unite musicians from across the world in a common creative platform for exploring the cultures and traditions of all.
The performance will conclude with a performance featuring local students.
