“Artist On Tour For Peace Holds Concert“ The concert for global unity at Port Grand in Karachi, Pakistan was a huge success, and an unprecedented call for peace and unity rising from the region. This great piece in the Pakistan’s biggest English newspaper, Dawn, speaks about the concert, in which Stephan sang in several languages including English, Urdu, Arabic, French, and Hungarian. He was joined by the country’s most beloved Qawwal’s, Farid Ayaz, Abu Muhammad and Qawwals, for his “Love, Make The World Go Round,” as images of thousands of Pakistani youth who made signs for unity were projected from a large backdrop behind them, and the audience also joined, making and holding signs for peace and unity.
“Love, Make The World Go Round” is out on iTunes! Share it with your friends and pick up one or a dozen copies, it’s just 99 cents and every purchase will help spread an anthem to unite the world, beginning from the streets of our generation’s biggest conflict. The track was co-produced by yours truly and Mark Plati (David Bowie, Rachid Taha, Charlie Winston), and recorded in the weeks before I took off to finally go home to Iraq to see my family and meet and work with young changemakers there to make the historic video for global unity. Together, we can spread a song that rises from the people, for the people, in every nation. Thanks, Stephan
