Orchestra Of Peace

In spite of all the bombs flying, peace is always underneath the surface. The sound of guns and explosions will never replace music. Religious dogma will never replace compassion, and empty words yelled in anger and hatred will never have the power of poetry. All will be well. We've known this for a long time. With infinite patience all good will come to pass and all evil will run out of steam. Love and life is stronger than hate and suffering, and even death.

This is the small but inspiring effort of a creative guy traveling around the world making people separated by thousands of miles, sing and play in harmony. Extraordinary people - those mystics of the street. Music is one of the greatest stepping stones into people's hearts, and into meditation. That is why mothers sing to their children, lovers to their sweethearts, devotees to their Gods, and street musicians to their fellow human beings.
