“Koloro” – a multi-art production paying tribute to the myriad colors in nature, culture, and life.
What happens when you bring 50 female musicians from all over the world onto one stage? A world music extravaganza ensues. Hot on the heels of their Japan tour, Women of the World, the illustrious all-female world music collective, will present their new production “Koloro” on February 25, 2013 at 8:15pm at the Berklee Performance Center.
From Tango dancers to Celtic tunes, and Indian alaaps to Italian folk, audiences are treated to a world sound-scape of rhythms, harmonies and styles from every corner of the globe! With lush choral arrangements, body and mouth percussion, experimental a cappella and dance works, Koloro promises to be an evening of celebration, while subtly reminding us of the beauty of diversity in our world. The concert will also include compositions featured on their latest studio album, Koloro.
Over the years, Women of the World has received accolades and collaborated with many renowned artists including Bobby McFerrin, Angelique Kidjo, Mario Frangoulis, and the Boston Pops Orchestra led by Maestro Keith Lockhart. With tours in Japan and the North American region, including performances at the Blue Note Jazz Club, Carnegie Hall, Boston’s Symphony Hall, and features at the Beantown Jazz Festival, TEDxBoston and United Nations events, Women of the World continues to spread the message of peace and unity through music. To date, Women of the World has united over 200 international women artists in this richly diverse musical collective.
