PeaceTones empowers musicians in developing countries by teaching them how to create, protect and sell their music throughout the world. We strive to help musicians continue the age-old tradition of being community leaders and role models in peace, culture and social justice.

Challenge Entries

PeaceTones aims to redefine the world music industry, creating a fair trade and community development business model that breaks down knowledge and access barriers to allow artists in developing countries to build viable and sustainable businesses. We strive to create a truly global marketplace through which musicians in low-income, post-conflict or post-disaster communities can sell their music to world markets online, keep the majority of profits from their music, and return a portion of their profits to their communities on an ongoing basis.
