Peace Day Party to activate Human Rights

peace day logo  play on spotifyEvery Man, Woman and Child is a musical presentation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This year, Spiraling Music has released a dozen new improvisations on the original ballad, which was the FIRST grassroots expression of the UDHR ever performed for the UN (1987). More recently, the chant version won a Global Peace Song Award in 2016.

Listen to all the versions of Every Man, Woman, and Child on Spotify.        

This year, with human rights in focus and change desperately needed in the world, we want to engage communities around the globe to move, groove, and meditate to the meaning of this song, and jam with us to create greater awareness of the UDHR.

Every Day is Peace Day, but September 21 is a global event. Put music on the maps
