Equator Festival launched the Women of the World concert series in 2012 with the simple aim of promoting female performers from all music genres, from all over the world. Each year Equator showcases the best in female performers, musicians and songwriters. Over the previous years the WOW series has presented music from Africa, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, India, Australia and the UK. The performances have included everything from choirs to solo performers, works you have heard before and new commissions.
Spargo Productions have managed the production of these events since 2014 working with artists such as Beyounes Quarter, Hannah Marcinowicz, Ignite Ensemble, London Bulgarian Choir, London Klezmer Quartet, London Tango Trio, Monica Vasconcelos, Oclay Bayir, Shallu Jindal, Carmen Souza, Shirely J Thompson, Anna Mudeka and Claudia Aurora.
