Jamming in the name of peace



The way to create change Is to empower. International superstars Mos Def and Crazy Town will perform alongside South African acts such as The Parlotones, RJ Benjamin and Jozi to create change at the Music 4 Peace Concert, taking place on Friday, 9 July 2010 at St Stithians College in Joburg.



The Tour 4 Peace Initiative (T4P) is a collection of non-profit organisations promoting world peace through the collaborative efforts of musicians, celebrities, peace activists, community leaders and private citizens. The concert is a philanthropic initiative whose proceeds will go to local youth empowerment initiatives as well as to clean-water NGO Generosity Water.



US-based T4P founder Wayne Warwick-Williams, aka Djun Djetti, is a descendant of the Darumbal aboriginal people of Central Queensland in Australia, and seeks to create awareness of and preserve of indigenous culture. Wayne’s noted for redefining the world of popular music as we know it by blending the didgeridoo with modern rhythms with his music outfit Totemic, while promoting global peace and harmony through various M4P initiatives.



This cultural peace network has worked on projects such as the Gandhi Tour with Dr Arun Gandhi, the grandson of the late Mahatma, Celebrating 30 days of peace- the UN call for global action at Donna Karen’s husbands Steven Weiss’s studio, in 2007, and Lord Attenborough's festival of non-violence at Kingsley Hall 2008. Dr Gandhi is an amba**ador for the T4P Tour, as is Baroness Kimberly Moore, Guinea-Bissau’s goodwill amba**ador to the United States, and Artie Kornfeld, the “father” of the seminal 1969 Woodstock festival.



In celebration of the gathering of peoples and cultures that the World Cup embodies, Friday’s concert is being used to highlight M4P’s message of a culture of peace during the final week of this historic tournament.



An exciting and eclectic line-up of local and international music acts will join hands for this boundary-busting festival of music, starting at 11am at the St Stithians fan park and rocking on until 11pm.



Joining American rapper Mos Def for the peace concert will be local rock act The Parlotones, “muthaland crunk” crew Jozi, iconic Cape Town rapper Ready D, neo-soul/R&B sensation RJ Benjamin, Israeli-born hip-hop violinist Miri Ben-Ari , US rap-rock group Crazy Town (who hit number one in the States with the track Butterfly) featuring DJ Shifty, groundbreaking Pakistani pop duo Strings, Barbadian roots reggae artist David Kirton, DJ R1CKONE (of Black Eyed Peas fame), Los Angeles alternative rock band Collinz Room, genre-crossing world/aboriginal music act Totemic, US alternative rock group Crash Kings, Botswana hip-hop ace K-Bos, Lection and Melo Dramatic.



Join this stellar multinational line-up at Friday’s Music 4 Peace Concert in harnessing the love and good vibes around the World Cup, uniting to empowering peace through music.



Tickets cost R200 for general admission to this 12-hour music festival, and R350 for VIP tickets, which give patrons access to a VIP pavilion and VIP lounge. Get your tickets at Computicket or at the gate – and give peace a sporting chance! Visit www.music4peacetour.com for more information.
