The second International Festival "A Song for Peace", Facundo Cabral Prize, took place in the city of São Luiz do Paraitinga, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, from May 12 to 14, 2017. On the stage of the event were 12 singers-songwriters from Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, Chile and Brazil, as well as musicians and guests from around the world. It was a great and beautiful event that inspired the public with the musical message of peace, love, harmony and understanding. At each year's festival, the Facundo Cabral Prize is awarded to a singer and songwriter from the country that hosts the Itinerant festival. This year the honoree was the renowned Gilberto Gil.
