The Edmonton Peace Festival Concert "Songs for Peace"
Please join us for The Edmonton Peace Festival's concert, "Songs for Peace". This uplifing and inspiring evening of music and poetry about peace features the following Edmonton artists:
* Nasra Adem - Edmonton's Youth Poet Laureate
* Roya Yazdanmehr - vocalist, songwriter and Mbira player. Her musical style is an intriguing blend of jazz, heartfelt soul, pop-rock grooves with an unmistakable Middle Eastern influence. Her melody, her rhythm, her songwriting weaves beautifully between the cultural crossroads of Persian, Romani, African, and North American musical traditions.
* Martin Kerr - "If Jack Johnson were bitten by a radioactive Cat Stevens, the result would be a superhuman being named Martin Kerr", said a college newspaper reviewer on hearing Martin's award-winning album, I Know You're Out There.
Like both those artists, his lyrics are original, profound and instantly memorable. With his red-hair and crystal clear tone, he caught the eye of the Canadian Idol judges and viewers in 2008, reaching the top 16 on Canada's most watched show.
Born and raised in Britain, Martin has visited over 30 countries and believes passionately in the oneness of all races and religions.
