Product Description

Two CD set. Songs for Tibet - The Art of Peace Music Project. Proceeds that the Art Of Peace Foundation receives goes to peace related projects. As a show of solidarity with the Dalai Lama and Tibet, 20 artists have come together to release this historic double album on the eve of the Beijing Olympics. These recordings - some original for the project and some acoustically driven recordings of previously released songs - express our common vulnerabilities and experiences in pursuing happiness, peace and freedom. Collectively, these tracks represent a heartfelt message of support for the path of compassion and non-violence championed by the Dalai Lama. Begun in May of 2008 and completed in two months, the outpouring of support from all corners of the world was unparalleled. Funds raised from the album will go to support peace initiatives and Tibetan cultural preservation projects important to the Dalai Lama.

wisdom.action.freedom Sept. 4 2008
By love books and music - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Twenty popular artists have contributed a track to this double album CD.

Included is a 14inch x 14inch poster of the cover art. Lyrics are not part of this package.

The background for this project called The Art of Peace was obtained from the link listed on the CD. It is as follows:

"Over the last 50 years, Tibetan culture has fed a spiritual renaissance in the West. The Dalai Lama's universal message of compassion, tolerance, non-violence and self-awareness, has become a profound spiritual source of inspiration for countless millions of people worldwide.

In 1950, the Chinese invaded Tibet and the Dalai Lama fled in exile to India shortly thereafter. Since then, the Chinese government has systematically suppressed Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan culture.

Recently, the Chinese government has embarked on a Han Chinese resettlement program within Tibet. Several million Han Chinese have been moved to Tibet. Tibetans are becoming an ethnic and cultural minority in their own land.

As this tragedy unfolds, the global economic and political might of the Chinese government continues to grow. Even the most powerful nations are hesitant to confront the Chinese meaningfully on human rights issues.

This a critical point in history with the potential loss of one of the world's great cultural treasures. The world's current focus on China may be the last opportunity that Tibet's plea for autonomy and freedom of expression to be heard on the world stage."

Current focus referred to in the sentence above is the Beijing 2008 Olympics. This album was released just before they began.

I would have bought this CD even if it didn't benefit anyone, the variety of the music and musicians is simply fabulous. Well worth the price.

Peaceful Indeed Nov. 12 2009
By A. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The album is FOR peace, so it should make you feel peaceful while listening to it... and it does. The songs are beautiful and peaceful. I recommend it to anyone who likes background music while sleeping, reading, cooking, whatever.

I REALLY wanted it have more new stuff... Nov. 2 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really wanted to give this CD a higher review...REALLY! The cause is freaking great! I sooooo support correcting the situation that Tibet is in right now and I am all about encouraging peace (I swear I am not a hippy). And this CD is FILLED with a bunch of my favorite artists...So where could it go wrong? I was foaming at the mouth for it to come out. Well...The cause is great and the artists are great (at least to me), but honestly this is a review of the content and on that, I was only marginally happy. First, just about all of it was remakes of other songs that the artists had done...They couldn't write something new for this CD? What's up with that! And in almost every case the remake was actually less appealing (again, at least to me) than the original. So with great sadness I give this CD a three. It's NOT *bad*...But if you already have love these artists and have their CDs, don't expect to get anything new.

Mailing it in Aug. 17 2014
By Joseph R. Stefani - Published on Amazon.com
When I came across this album in Prime I thought, "I don't remember this..." turns out that's because it is largely unmemorable. Big names for sure but nothing that knocks your socks off and generally not a cohesive production. If you can get it free on Prime take a listen, if you have to pay, take a pass.

This is a healing album Oct. 19 2008
By aikanae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The songs donated (or picked) for this collection offer a message of peace and healing. Songs for Tibet isn't just for Tibet, but for all of us.

I found this album was compelling, refreshing, and a nice break from the craziness going on right now - yet without escaping it either. The songs delivered personal messages that affirmed individual worth, everyone counts, our strengths, beliefs, need for compassion and of course, freedom. I felt reminded of my best and the place where decisions need to come from. That was very healing to hear again.

This cd is for the world and I can understand why this release skyrocketed to #1 album on ITunes. I originally dismissed it because I thought Songs For Tibet would be contrived, popish and boring. But the songs are new or unique to this release, the songwritting/singing is genuine and heartfelt. There wasn't any "bling", phony beats, or overkill based on a marketing wet dream. What a refreshing change.

Instead, the songs were presented very minimally and simply. Each one had a purpose for being included on the album and every song was essential for the entire concept. Wow. The songs had to be great for that to work. There is inspiring talent on this album.

Many people have experienced hard times, or realized things aren't what they thought this last decade. That's where Songs for Tibet comes in. The album was a reminder for me of individual strengths and restored some hope for choosing to live in peace; in a place where everyone counts and no one is forgotten, sacrificed or left behind. I haven't heard that for a long time.

I can see where countries like China would have objections to achieving goals using individual expression, and probably why the album got banned. My original reason for getting this cd was because of that ban. I am so glad I did now.

So, thank you China.
