Beautiful women's voices singing songs from all over the planet, helping world communities in need and
finding common ground between cultures.
The thirty singers who make up CHOROMONDO and the twelve members of the CHOROMONDO TOURING ENSEMBLE come from diverse
backgrounds. There are teachers, doctors, dancers, writers, an actress, a massage therapist, a homeopath, a midwife,
a travel journalist, an organic farmer...many had never sung in a choir before, but these women LOVE to sing, and
they have formed an incredible group together, both musically and as a community.
in January 1999, by musician/composer Allyna Harris, Choromondo presently has a repertoire of over 100 songs from
over 25 countries including Bulgaria, South Africa, the Balkans, Japan, Cuba, Latvia, Spain and the Republic of
Choromondo concerts are dedicated to helping world communities in need. To quote one reviewer, "in this
way, Choromondo returns the cultural loans they take out from the world's songbooks".
The choir has sung benefit concerts for farmers in East Timor, flood victims in Mozambique and orphans in India
and Bangladesh. Through the common human experiences expressed in the songs they sing, Choromondo also hopes to
help bridge differences between cultures and contribute to a more peaceful planet.
