MasterPeace in Concert - "Music above Fighting"
On September 21, 2014, MasterPeace celebrated the UN International Day of Peace with 55 events in 42 countries, including many in conflict areas. At the heart of these MasterPeace celebrations, a heartwarming concert took place in the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) bringing top artists from (former) conflict areas together on one stage, supported by the renowned Metropole Orkest, Oleta Adams, Baaba Maal and Dutch top artist VanVelzen. The show was directed by Leoni Jansen.
The concert focused the world’s attention on the universal longing for a sustainable world, free of armed conflict. To fuel dialogue and celebrate diversity. All artists supported this call with a truly mesmerizing show.
Also the beautiful and multi-talented Minyeshu from Ethiopia joined. Since 2005 she is a very welcome performer in the international music scene, including the World Festival of Black Arts where she joined African music ambassadors such as Angélique Kidjo, Baaba Maal and Youssou N’Dour.
She performed together with Kahsay Berhe, one of the most popular present Eritrean musicians. Berhe has made Eritrean music more known globally, with several concerts on international stages, in London, Geneva and other countries.
