Why Music?

"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.

  • Music can help people affected by war to re-discover connection.
  • Music can raise the voices of the unheard.
  • Music can be our collective voice for social justice and peace.
  • Music is our stepping stone towards creating lasting social change.
