The third Peace Sounds sharing piece is from multi instrumentalist, mindfulness teacher and cat lover Kareem Ghandour. For those who have heard Peace Sounds 2 will know Kareem’s ‘Opening Up Pan Jam’ an improvisation of the tune ‘We are opening up our hearts and minds’ for hand pan, percussion and hand claps. We spoke about Kareem growing up in Jordan, musical journeys and what it means to work for peace.
During this year we have a talking project to share – sharings with the Peace Sounds artists asking about their relationship to song and what peace means to them.
The first is with Poet, Author and Quaker Elder Chris Goodchild. Chris’ song Life is Beautiful is on Peace Sounds 1.
We will release a release date 🙂 on July 1st
