WHAT'S YOUR SONG? (0:37)
‘You may be poor, you may only have a ramshackle house, you may have lost your job, but that song gives you hope.’
Nelson Mandela

We use music as a tool to build connections, foster empathy and shape communities. Studies have shown that music is a powerful tool that can influence behavior, shape culture and strengthen social bonds. We use music as a means to address the needs of societies divided and affected by conflict.

Who We Are
‘If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.’
Jimi Hendrix

Founded in 1999, Musicians Without Borders is a global network organization of musicians, individuals, partnering organizations and music advocates. We are dedicated to empowering musicians as social activists and young people as change makers.

Our mission is to bridge divides, connect communities, and heal the wounds of war using the power of music.
