Peace is love that you have for other people and respect that you have and you get peace from people who are around you.....And you get peace from your family and friends the people who loves you more than everything.Peace is very important in everyone's life because if you don't have peace you don't have life and you don't have future in this world.

The Peace and Music Project – The last four Years
Nathaniel Nayluza in action during the peace day concert.
the last four years we have hosted three awarenet Peace Day Concerts
with five different schools participating every year. All songs were
originally written and rapped in isiXhosa or English, with lots of time
and effort going into composing, rhyming and practicing for the big
concert. Participating schools were Mary Waters HS, Nombulelo SS, C.M
Vellem HPS, Good Shepard PS, Ntaba Maria PS, Khulitso Daniel SS,
Nathaniel Nayluza SS. Intense training in lyrics and vocal training was
given by Sonic Art Studio. After about 10 weeks of preparation it all
came together at our annual Peace Day Concert (International Peace Day:
21/9) which is usually held in the Joza location. Teams competed in
rapping, singing and performing against each other for the best overall
Peace Song. Overall winners so far were Mary Waters HS, Ntaba Maria PS
and Victoria Girls High School respectively.
Good Shepard learners busy recording their Peace Song at the Rhodes Music Department
best male and female rappers also receive a certificate and a prize for
their effort. Another certificate is usually given out for best lyrics.
The concerts were well attended by local people.
all songs were recorded professionally once by Sonic Art Studio and
twice by the Rhodes University Music and Musicology Department. Two CD
launch parties took place so far, the third will happen soon. The
overall winners (Mary Waters HS and Ntaba Maria PS) of the best Peace
Song also had the opportunity to have their own music video
professionally made. Victoria Girls High School’s music video will be
produced soon. Mary Waters HS’s video was taken in the areas around
their school, while Ntaba Maria PS’s was taken in the Botanical Gardens
and at the Settlers Monument with a beautiful view of the city. This
year we will be hosting the Peace Day Concert again in September 21 and
training for this big day will begin in the third term.
