URI Brazil, in collaboration with the URI Latin America and the Caribbean region, Campinas Cooperation Circle, and all the Cooperation Circles of Brazil, is hosting its second "A Song for Peace" festival. It will feature songs about peace, compassion, and human values from Latin American composers. "Songs and stories refresh our memory and our imagination, activating memories, emotions, and dreams that give us a new breath on the life path we have chosen,"

says the region’s URI coordinator, Dr. Enoé Texier. 

If you are a Latin American composer interested in participating in this year’s festival, music submissions will remain open until the 28th of February. Send submissions to
