After decades of war and unrest, and a hard fought peace agreement, a post war Colombian Truth and Reconciliation process is shaking and may fail to take hold.
SONGS FOR PEACE is a citizen led campaign designed to help fill the void.
Can you support our efforts?
SONGS FOR PEACE will amplify and magnify the voices and testimony of the people who experienced decades of regional wars in Colombia, up-close and personally, from all perspectives. Guerilla, military and paramilitary, men and women, young and old.
The rich diversity of musical genres and traditions in Colombia will play an important part in the process of transforming a culture of impunity and violence into a culture of equity, justice, and peace.
Is that something you can support with a donation, right now?
The SONGS FOR PEACE Campaign launch video is nearly complete, thanks to help from the students and professors at Colombia's Conservatory of Music and the National University of Colombia School of Film and Television.
In the coming months, the SONGS FOR PEACE campaign launch video will begin to broadcast a call across Colombia to songwriters, musicians and other artists to come together for the SONGS FOR PEACE Artist Gathering. We will sit in a space of introspection, to explore our path, as creators and artists, towards uniting and helping heal our war-torn country in this transcendental moment in our history.
Will you help us, today?
Out of the gathering, we envision many potential outcomes, including touring the county, or the production of music videos that will embody the pain and suffering of war, as well as paths toward reconciliation that our country can finally embrace.
Please contribute right now, and share the link with your friends.
