MUSICIANS WITHOUT BORDERS

Using the power of music to bridge divides, connect communities, and heal the wounds of war.

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

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.
  • Music crosses ethnic divides and provides neutral space to meet through shared talents and passions.
  • Community music-making is a direct and accessible tool for connecting people and engaging and mobilizing communities.
  • From drum circles to choirs to rock bands, music can be practiced by any person at her/his own level regardless of musical skills, whether in small groups or in a setting of hundreds or even thousands of people.
