Attention Artists Everywhere…Join the Movement: “Harmony for Humanity”

Be part of this year’s 10th annual Daniel Pearl World Music Days October 1-31st, 2011. The Daniel Pearl World Music Foundation uses music to express the importance of human tolerance, regardless of your race, socioeconomic back ground religion or belief systems. Daniel Pearl was Wall Street Journal’s South Asian Bureau Chief, journalist, as well as an accomplished musician who performed all over the world. Shortly after 9/11, he was kidnapped and murdered by extremists in Karachi, Pakistan.

The Daniel Pearl World Music Days Foundation was founded in 2002 in memory of Daniel Pearls passion to promote cross-cultural dialogue and understanding to counter cultural and religious intolerance to cultivate responsible and balanced journalism and inspire unity and friendship through music. The mission of the Foundation is to promote cross-cultural understanding through journalism, music and innovative communications, as found on the Daniel Pearl website. The foundation’s honorary committee includes a long list of famous, accomplished musicians and artists including; Herbie Hancock, Sir Elton John, Dave Koz, Alison Krauss, Matisyahu, Mark O’Connor, Itzhak Perlman, Steve Reich, R.E.M., Ravi Shanker and more.

Harmony for Humanity is an international movement of artists coming together by creating concert events in dedication of the Daniel Pearl World Music Days mission. To participate, simply visit the Daniel Pearl website  and register as an artist, journalist, musician, designer, poet, songwriter, reporter of a Harmony for Humanity event, or simply submit what “Harmony for Humanity,” means to you. There is also an eStage where you can digitally submit any of your art in relation to this movement. All this information and how to register is found on the website so please visit it (if you haven’t already) and explore the powerful possibilities.

Already have a concert or show planned in October? Dedicate it to the Daniel Pearl World Music Days Foundation and have your voice heard round the world. This is not a donation just simply a dedication to spread the word about cross-cultural tolerance.  If you are an artist of any kind, then this is a phenomenal opportunity to share your talents and gifts with the world, and promote a mission for all to hear.
