Peace Through Music

Music has always been at the center of my life and my greatest passion - as a composer, performer or just to listen to.

Recently, I became aware of a website that features music performed by street musicians from around the world. The producer got several of these musicians to play the same song and combined the result into some absolutely enjoyable music.

Stand by Me:
