Concert performances and Community Peace Building is what the One Love Festival is all about. And while the event only occurs one day each year, the energy it generates among the performers, the audience, and its volunteers continues to spread and grow the other 364 days of the year.  Performances by Briana Cornelius & Cohesion Band, master session drummer Rick Mateo, Black Lion Insurgents, gospel singer Linda Henderson, gospel singer Portia Absolute Harrigan Bryant, spoken word artist Madeline Garcia, Norfolk Academic Guild, and more. We will have short drum circle sessions inbetween performance setups.

There are many Drum Circles, from around the World, participating in the “Largest Drum Circle in the World” for Peace and Global Unity in a 24 hour period. This is only one event, of the many, occurring here in the US. Please plan on making one in your own country starting in your own community.

Here is a song that I wrote about Peace that I hope we sing this day:

(drums playing a single base beat)
We want peace
(2 beats)
We want unity
(2 beats)
We want this
(2 beats)
In our world Community
(drum stop playing)
We want Peace all over the World
We want Peace all over the World.
(Repeat from the beginning)

Please watch this film where John Hunter the inventor of the “World Peace Games” Plants the seeds of Peace in our schools to help shape the youth of today who later become the leaders of tomorrow.
John Hunter puts all the problems of the world on a 4’x5′ plywood board — and lets his 4th-graders solve them. At TED2011, he explains how his World Peace Game engages school kids, and why the complex lessons it teaches — spontaneous, and always surprising — go further than classroom lectures can.
Teacher and musician John Hunter is the inventor of the World Peace Game (and the star of the new doc “World Peace and Other 4th-Grade Achievements”).

Please watch this film of “Jeremy Gilley: One Day of Peace” on YouTube that inspired me to become involved in working on “Largest Drum Circle in the World” for Peace and Global Unity.
To me, it is the significance of one ordinary man’s quest, with no money, no fame, no political power, but only a dream and the passion to pursue this desire for peace. Through his efforts, he is able to get UN World Leaders to adopt the very first day of peace as September 21. He accomplishes his goal for “One Day of Peace”. It starts with one individual’s effort to create a change in this world. We all start out being ordinary we become extraordinary by our actions. I hope you feel inspired to make some personal journey of your own towards helping create peace in our lifetime.
