Women in World Jazz Concert: A Tribute to Women Composers

The Library is kicking off Women’s History Month with a concert by Women in World Jazz! Adults and kids of all ages are invited to join us for this program, which will feature music by women composers from around the world.

Women in World Jazz, a performing 5 piece ensemble, was founded by Tal Shalom-Kobi in 2015. Women in World Jazz aims to expose audiences to different cultures through music, with a variety of music backgrounds including jazz, folk, pop, rock, and blues.

WIWJ director and Berklee College of Music faculty, Tal Shalom-Kobi, has been active in the music history arena for the past 20 years, researching and performing music written by women from the USA and around the world. The group Women in World Jazz features world music composed by women composers and lyricists past and present. From USA Blues and Jazz styles, the group ventures to Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East to celebrate the diversity and power of creativity.

Women In World Jazz brings together women of different nationalities with extensive experience in performance and education. The music is easy to relate to, diverse, and engaging. All members of the group are accomplished musicians playing a variety of music ranging from jazz to world. Learn more about the group and its members on their website!

This event is generously sponsored by the Brookline Library Foundation.
