We collected together some of the finest composer/musicians for this show, artists that have toured the globe, played the biggest stages, and created sparkling albums! They also just happen to be women. Jyotsna Srikanth, Sara McGuinness, and Kalia Lyraki also excel as innovators conjuring up new projects & festivals, and as educators in...spiring the next generation of music-makers in Saharawi refugee camps to British/Greek/Cuban/Indian universities. Between them they have raised successful bands like Grupo Lokito, Kalia Lyraki Quartet, and Bangalore Dreams, led teams of merry men, and use their prowess and skills to navigate a way through an industry which is hardly female-friendly – see recent quotes from Madonna and Björk! What does it take to be a musical Wonder-Woman? Listen here for unmissable insights and the brilliant music by Kalia, Sara, and Jyotsna!

  1. Int Women's Day AWIL was an excellent show. The discussion about the battles women in music still face was informative, educational and - most of all - inspirational. Please listen, everyone.
