More about GRAINS OF PEACE:
Except guns and bombs, the main weapons of the enemy are fear and anxiety. They poison
our thoughts, destroy our strength and oppress our hearts.
We believe that music is an instrument of peace, a medicine, which power can be felt
by everyone and can help to find faith, hope and peace in this world again
We invite artists and music lovers from all over the world to sow Grains of Peace to
support the spirit of our country, fill souls with light and fill the future with meaning
