Breitkopf & Härtel Women of Our World
Intercultural Songbook edited by Hayat Chaoui [ch (2-3pt)]
Coming Together, Singing Together, Growing Together – Cultural Exchange through Music
The intercultural songbook Women of Our World contains about 40 songs from all over the world in easy two- to three-part
arrangements for equal voices.Thereby, the songbook is usable for women’s and children’s choirs as well as open singing
opportunities, e.g. in refugee initiatives and intercultural institutions. Introductory texts for every song give information on the origin, pronunciation and cultural background of the pieces. Some of the songs from more than 25 different countries are personally introduced by a singer from the intercultural choir WoW – Women of Wuppertal, led by editor Hayat Chaoui. The flexibly usable arrangements by church musician and conservatory lecturer Prof. Jürgen Blume also allow the accompaniment by piano or guitar with chord symbols. Translations of the lyrics in German and English furthermore enable a content-related engagement.
