We offer participatory music and movement programs that build cross-cultural bridges, honor and preserve indigenous musical traditions and offer emotional support to those who have experienced the trauma of war or displacement.
The power of music
Get to know us
Musical Ambassadors of Peace is a 501c(3) organization dedicated to healing those traumatized by war through the power of music worldwide.
Musical Ambassadors of Peace was founded in 2003 by Cameron Powers and Kristina Sophia, two musicians with a passion for Middle Eastern music who visited Baghdad soon after the U.S. invasion to rebuild cross-cultural bridges broken by war and political upheaval. Even amidst the rubble and destruction Cameron and Kristina offered those suffering from PTSD, the loss of loved ones, depression and fear, the ability to see the world from a musician’s perspective without political overtones. Their findings were simple: when people make music together, they heal together. Throughout their travels they saw personal bonding and deep healing take place when people came together to sing and dance to their own native music.
