Women of the World is an international quartet of powerful women performing original and traditional a cappella music with a contemporary twist. The vocalists hail from Japan, Italy, India, and the USA (by way of Haiti). Each musician has a strong artistic identity shaped by the culture in which she was raised. Celebrating their differences, the group has performed in 29 languages (and counting), all with an underlying message of peace. Together their commitment to celebrate differences in ideology and cultural tenets through music rooted in peace is visceral.

Mentored by Grammy-award winning maestro Bobbie McFerrin, they have collaborated with Anjelique Kidjo, and the Boston Pops Orchestra. Women of the World create music that is borderless and spirited, carrying an undeniable message of unity and peace. Their commitment to (literally and figuratively!) creating harmony in the communities they visit will include a workshop with middle school students who will then join them on the Mariner!
