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

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.
