AVOICE4PEACE offers a rare glimpse at the vibrant and expressive musical culture of Kenya and illustrates the meaningful contribution of three musicians who are using music - humanity’s universal language - to bring about peace in Kenya and around the world.
The film explores concepts of international musical collaboration, the global refugee crisis, the socio-economic challenges and cultural differences that can trigger conflict, and the idea that peace begins and ends with the individual. It teaches us that violence does not occur in a vacuum; that it’s the thousand little decisions we make every day that lead to an act of violence.
This timely and unforgettable documentary plants the idea in our minds that if we would just stop what we are doing and sing together - this most companionable of arts - we could bring peace and harmony to ourselves and to others.
