WHO WE ARE (2:53)
‘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

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

Since 1999, we’ve been using the power of music for peace-building, connecting people, empowering musicians as social activists, and training local youth as change-makers.
