“One Human” Project With 123 Artists from 110 Countries
The “One Human” project, an international initiative that seeks to foster global unity through music, has released a spectacular music video. The “One Human” song and video includes 123 singers and instrumentalists from 110 Countries around the world. The proceeds raised through the release of the song and associated fundraiser will benefit UNICEF.
The project is led by musician and composer Graham Czach and was released coinciding with the UN Nelson Mandela International Day weekend.
The recording features performances from well known world music, pop, opera and rock acts, including Kris Myers (Umphrey’s McGee), Canada-based award winning musician Alpha Yaya Diallo, Grammy award winner Dobet Gnahoré, Grammy award winner Al Walser, Greek star George Perris, New York City Opera soprano Tharanga Goonetilleke, and many more.
Czach composed and arranged the song for a world orchestra that includes musical instruments from a wide range of traditions: Japanese Taiko drums, Indian sitar and santoor, West African jembe, Latin percussion, Scottish bagpipes, Arabic ud, European hurdy-gurdy and mandolin, along with Western Classical instruments such as trumpet, trombone, and strings.
Czach provides details about the “One Human”project, “This song and video tell the story of all of us, and creates something special and unique in showing how we are so much stronger and better as a whole. By coming together as one, through compassion and the universal language of music, we can unite in a higher consciousness, as one people, to help solve our many crises in the world.”
