Sharon Katz & the Peace Train

Recorded at World Café Live in Philadelphia, PA

Singer and songwriter, Sharon Katz used her music as a tool for social change in South Africa. With her band, The Peace Train, she emphasized intercultural harmony and spiritual uplift. Her music helped lay the groundwork for South Africa’s democratic uprising in 1994. Her “When Voices Meet” project brought together 500-member multicultural youth choir, earning the respect and praise of Nelson Mandela himself. In this episode, we will explore how music can bring cultures together in a peaceful harmony.
