Women Of The World

Women of the World

 

Created in 2008 by the visionary vocalist Ayumi Ueda, Women of the World is an international ensemble of musicians representing 9 countries - Japan, India, Italy, Haiti, United States of America, Canada, Mexico, Serbia, and Brazil. Honoring global folk traditions, the four core vocalists (Ayumi Ueda - Japan; Giorgia Renosto - Italy; Annette Philip - India, Deborah Pierre - Haiti/USA) and six-piece band present a vast and varied repertoire that spans music in 23 languages, creating rich tapestries of culture and sound.

Women of the World was nominated for the 2013 Boston Music Awards, as well as the 2014 Independent Music Awards. They were also named 2014 Boston Champions in the state-wide a cappella sweepstakes harmony fest, and will represent New England at the national levels in mid 2014.

In many ways, the ensemble is a microcosm of the world, with members working closely together, not just to create and perform music, but also learning about each others countries, cultures, languages, beliefs and practices.

With tours in Japan, Canada and across the United States, 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 has united over 200 women to date in their journey of spreading peace and unity through music.

Annette is the lead vocalist of the collective, and is featured on the latest JU music video, Words Linger.



Artistes Unlimited

Artistes Unlimited

 

What began as an idea in 2003 has now evolved into India’s largest and most diverse performing arts ensemble, with a rotating line up of over 250 artists. Founded by Annette Philip and Anantika Bakht, Artistes Unlimited (AU) was a first-of-its-kind platform that sought to promote young artists in a non-competitive environment in the city of New Delhi. With music as its core focus, AU performs a vast repertoire spanning jazz, a-cappella, gospel, rock, R&B, musical theatre, Indian and Western classical, and Sufi and folk traditions.  

Believing in experimentation and the immense power of collaborative action, Artistes Unlimited is now a registered charitable trust committed not only to empowering young artists and entrepreneurs, but also aims to use the arts to educate, inspire, and effect real social change.
