Women of Spirit is a collection spotlighting music from all over the world made by female artists, from the U.S. and British Isles to South America, Africa, and the Mediterranean. As such, it's musically incoherent, even schizophrenic, and the stylistic leaps can result in a jarring listen, but the all-over-the-map approach does make an intriguing case for the richness and diversity of women's voices in all the cultures of the world. Artists include Ani DiFranco, Capercaillie with Sibeba, Cassandra Wilson, Tarika, Susana Baca, Toshi Reagon and Bernice Johnson Reagon, Fortuna, Rasha, Sibongile Khumalo, Ima Galguen, Coco Mbassi, and Savina Yannatou.
