Imagine a gathering of musicians from the west, joined by musicians from developing countries from around the world who play traditional instruments; different religions, languages, cultures, colour of skin and histories (differences that usually create wars), brought together on the Amazon and to help break the world record for the longest performance of 65 hours of non-stop and jamming with villages while we sail down the Amazon River.
Music is the only positive international language and a great healer of all differences and the only real vessel for peace. “If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.” – Jimi Hendrix
