Event Description Celebrating global folk traditions from Bulgaria to Brazil and Japan to Africa, this Boston-based international a cappella quartet performs original and traditional music from around the world, with a contemporary twist. Ayumi Ueda, a Berkley College of Music alumna from Japan, created this multicultural ensemble that not only crosses boundaries musically, but is committed to the ongoing practice of peace in their daily interactions. Ayumi joins forces with like-minded vocal artists Giorgia Renosto from Italy, Annette Philip from India, and Débòrah Pierre from USA/Haiti to manifest this vision. Each has a strong artistic identity shaped by the culture in which she grew up; each finds endless excitement in learning and exploring the many cultures of the world. The unique music that flows from this cross-pollination of genres, rhythms, and global sounds is borderless and spirited, carrying the undeniable message of unity.
