World Music for World Peace with Gandhi’s Grandson – enduring legacy of Mahatma Gandhi

World Music for World Peace with Gandhi

The event is organised by Tribes of the World and Music 4 Peace in conjunction with the Festival of Nonviolence, to commemorate the years that have passed since the assassination of two advocates and practitioners of Nonviolence, respectively, 60 years for Mahatma Gandhi and 40 years for Martin Luther King.

The concert also forms a part of The Gandhi Tour’s annual, multi-city global music and art tour, its mission being to create a global cultural platform to spread Mahatma Gandhi’s message of peace through the universal language of music and the arts. The tour and event is endorsed by Arun Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson, who continues to eternalise his Grandfathers prolific message of Nonviolence, multicultural understanding and ending global hunger along with world peace.

The principle aim of the festival is to remind Londoners and visitors of the depth and power of Nonviolence and its pervasive power today in solving the major problems of our city and the world at large. At no point in time could this be more relevant, as we find ourselves in the midst of a climate of senseless violence, which dominates the headlines on a regular basis.

Gandhi’s message of peaceful protest holds further resonance at this time, as London recently witnessed the violent demonstrations against the Olympic Torch Re-lay, as a reaction to China’s control of Tibet. In contrast, Mahatma Gandhi was an advocate of non-violent resistance and peaceful protest, which ultimately led India to independence from British rule, and consequently inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. He was tragically assassinated on 30th January 1948 by a Hindu radical.
