From the Daniel Pearl Foundation:
Now in its 9th year, Daniel Pearl World Music Days, is a month-long global network of concerts each October, promoting peace and cross cultural understanding through the universal language of music. Coinciding with Danny's October 10 birthday, this global symphony welcomes the participation of all music events from every genre. We set a new record last October, with musicians at 1,558 events in 79 countries, empowering audiences with a sense of unity and purpose under the common banner of "Harmony for Humanity." This year, with your help, we hope to increase the impact on every continent..
There is no financial obligation to participate, all that is required is a dedication made from the stage, or listed in the printed program, and a simple registration of the event on http://www.danielpearlmusicdays.org/. Once registered, all performances will be promoted on our website, with artist pages, bio's and external links.
Led by our honorary committee, World Music Days is open to all - professionals, amateurs, student groups, non-profit organizations, embassies and religious groups of every faith. Participating events include already scheduled performances or specifically organized events. Please note that concerts held outside the October 1-31, 2010 time frame are welcome to be registered as "Tribute Events."
