KAMELOT To Take Part In 'Daniel Pearl World Music Days'

According to a posting on the KAMELOT web site, the American/Norwegian melodic metal band has been invited to participate in this year's Daniel Pearl World Music Days, an international network of artists/concerts using the power of music to reaffirm their commitment to tolerance and humanity.

Inspired by the legacy of journalist and musician Daniel Pearl, World Music Days — which is being held October 1-31 — uses the universal language of music to spread a message of hope and unity across cultural divides. By simply including a dedication from the stage or in the program of a performance, the artists can reaffirm their commitment to international friendship and take a stand against the divisive forces that took Danny's life. As members of this global network of concerts, the artists' music will inspire their audiences with a sense of unity and purpose.

Since World Music Days' inception in 2002, more than 2,000 concerts in over 77 countries of every musical genre have been dedicated to Danny's belief that through the universal language of music we can bridge differences and unite people around their shared humanity.

Other notable artists include ROBERT PLANT & ALISON KRAUSS, R.E.M., STING, ELTON JOHN and many many more.
