Leading actors, musicians and thought leaders have come together to curate a definitive playlist of songs that bring them peace. Scroll down to find out who is taking part.
The Peace Day Playlist
We have invited leading actors, artists and musicians to curate the first-ever Peace Day Playlist. The list consists of songs that bring them peace and leading up to Peace Day this playlist will be available to stream on iTunes and Spotify for you to enjoy.
The Playlist also features ‘One’ the Peace Day Anthem by Coke Studio Africa, which has brought musicians together to celebrate the power of Peace Day both in Africa and beyond. These initiatives show how music is a unique vehicle to amplify the message of the day, bringing people together in the name of peace.
Each song was chosen because it resonated with each curator, bringing them peace in their daily lives. Click on the images to find out who took part, the songs they chose and the reasons behind each.
‘ONE’ is the Peace Day anthem, bringing artists from across the African continent together for peace and unity. Produced by Coke Studio in Nairobi it features Zwai Bala (South Africa), Ice Prince (Nigeria), Dama Do Bling (Mozambique), Maurice Kirya (Uganda), Alikiba (Tanzania) and Wangechi (Kenya). It can be DOWNLOADED below. This anthem is supporting Peace One Day to raise awareness of Peace Day, 21 September in the Great Lakes region of Africa and across the world. We are grateful to the Howard G. Buffett Foundation for making this possible.
Wherever you are you can tune in and hear these songs of peace on your laptop, tablet or phone via both Spotify and iTunes.
