Peace Drums: EMMA for Peace in Lampedusa

EMMA for Peace is proud to be among the organizers of Peace Drums. PeaceDrums is a concert spread out across the Mediterranean Sea. Thousands of drums exchange beats from coast to coast making the heartbeat into a pulse of peace at the rhythm of music.  All together, on the 23rd of September 2017, we will make one sound resonate: THE WAVE OF PEACE The starting point for communication will be the beach. The rhythm will take us back to the ancestral essence of life: the heartbeat. From a reverse perspective, the beach becomes the symbolic starting point for a dialogue based on the rhythm of music. From Lampedusa to Venice, Istanbul, Smirne, Beirut, Gaza, Tel Aviv, Alexandria, Tunisia, Cyprus, Barcellona, Marseille and more.
