Daniel Pearl Foundation Issues Call
for Musicians Worldwide to Join in the 9th Annual Daniel Pearl World
Music Days to be Held October 1 – 31


/PRNewswire/ — The Daniel Pearl Foundation today issued a call for
musicians around the world to join in “Harmony for Humanity” by
participating in the 9th Annual Daniel Pearl World Music Days which will
be held October 1 – 31, 2010.

Every October for the
past eight years, thousands of professional and amateur musicians from
every musical genre have dedicated their performances around their
common humanity inspired by the legacy of journalist/musician Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street JournalPakistan shortly after 9/11. Centered
around Danny’s October birthday, participating musicians commemorate his
life and work by using the universal language of music to spread a
message of hope that brings people together in a united stand for peace
and against the culture of violence. Since World Music Days’ inception
in 2002, more than 4,900 concerts in 102 countries have been dedicated.

World Music Days is an
awareness-raising initiative that involves no cost to participate, nor
is it a fundraising event.  Musicians are invited to log on to
and register their already existing or specially planned October
performances, and then make a brief dedication at their event from the
stage or in the printed program in support of the theme of “Harmony for
Humanity.”  Daniel Pearl World Music Days website features an
interactive world map with all participating events, and allows artists
to promote their events and music via individual Artist Profile Pages,
which feature bios, photos and videos, as well as links to artist
websites and social networking pages.

“Danny was a talented
musician who joined musical groups in every community he visited. He
firmly believed in the power of music to unite people,” said Judea and Ruth Pearl, parents of Daniel
and Co-Founders of the Daniel Pearl Foundation. “Musicians
can simply dedicate a song or entire performance from stage or in the
printed program to inspire their audiences with the inevitable triumph
of humanity over hate and violence.”

“Last year, artists at
more than 1,550 concerts in 79 countries took part in this global
initiative,” said World Music Days’ Program Director Paul Karlsen. “We also welcome Tribute Events
that take place the other eleven months during the year, and offer an
alternative way to participate for those who might not have any
scheduled performances during October and would like to be part of this
