Songs Without Borders, a project initiated by Professor Johan Galtung and headed by musician Solfrid Molland, is a TRANSCEND project where we use our universal language music to unite people and encourage peace. One of TRANSCEND’s core beliefs is that the creative spirit within all human beings can transcend the forces of contradiction and conflict. Music and the arts thus can play a major role in inspiring people towards the enhancement of more peace and justice in our societies. In the project Songs Without Borders TRANSCEND’s decades of well-respected peace research are channeled into the power of the arts for peacebuilding. The first manifestation is this album of peace songs. It includes songs from different traditions around the world, carefully selected because of their universal approach to peace.
