The 12 songs in parts 1 through 4 on the player that you are listening to are by artists from all over the world with a message.
These 12 tracks in total were presented in the same order they appear here as on the live edition of Zest Radio Show on February 3 2007 on CKRG 89.9 FM Radio Glendon, York University, Toronto, Canada.
Paul Richmond, host of the show, extends his gratitude to all of these great artists for donating their music for this segment, The One Word Mantra Of Peace.
After the segment was released as a download to communities the world over, reaction to the music was overwhelmingly positive and filled with emotion by the listeners, and the musicians that took part in this compilation.
There has been so much positive feedback of the music and the way it flows.
The lyrics of the songs presented and the underlying music send each artists expression of their thoughts of how the world around them has influenced their choice of message in collaborations and community spirit.
Certainly there must be more people out there that need to hear these musicians music in this amazing compilation, without the spoken word element of the broadcast included. Why? Because the music in this presentation encompasses the ability to bring forth many emotions in terms of our planet, it's inhabitants and ultimately, a want for peace to prevail.
Enjoy, and please, any feedback would be welcomed by myself, the artists and the world at large.
