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

Where war has raged, people need everything to return to life: food, water, shelter, clothing, medicine. But more than anything, people need hope. To reconcile, people need empathy. To heal, people need connection and community.

Music creates empathy, builds connection and gives hope.

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.

Our long-term commitment allows our participants the time to develop skills and talents, process grief and loss, and build bridges of reconciliation in societies divided by recent or ongoing conflict.

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