Free and open to the public! “Women of the World” is a concert featuring women-led world music groups as a part of World Music Festival Chicago 2017.

LePercolateur (Chicago), 3:00pm-3:45pm
The troupe transforms Green Mill Cocktail Lounge, Andy's Jazz Club, Untitled, Jazz Showcase, Winter's Jazz Club, Mayne Stage and Katerina's into sold-out Parisian dance halls circa 1937 on a monthly basis. Their high-energy sideshow has made “Percolateers” of attendees of the Lakeview Art Festival, Glen Ellyn Jazz Festival, Deer Park Jazz Festival, Jazz Institute of Chicago’s 2011 & 2012 Jazz Tours, Hard Rock Cafe Chicago, and many more.

Ecos del Pacifico (Colombia/Chicago), 4:00pm-4:45pm
Ecos del Pacifico Afrocolombia is a Chicago-based group formed in 2006 by Julio Cesar Montaño Montenegro and steeped in the Afro-Colombian music and dance traditions of the Pacific coast of Colombia. The group features members of the Montaño Arboleda family and a diverse complement of Chicago musicians of various ethnicities performing on traditional Afro-Colombian percussion, marimba, guitar, clarinet and bass.

Underground System (NY), 5:00pm-6:00pm
If anyone doubts that international pull of Afrobeat, the funky post-James Brown-style invented in Nigeria by the legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti in the late 60s, then you need to check out New York’s hard-hitting Underground System. The band is veritable model of multicultural fun. The ten-piece combo was founded by producer Peter Matson and is fronted by Domenica Fossati, a Black Italian raised in Venezuela and Miami, and the rest of the lineup includes members from Brazil, Japan, and the Philippines, in addition to the melting pot in Brooklyn. Underground System further distinguishes itself with a frontline dominated by women, rejecting the support role usually reserved for women in Afrobeat history.
