Album Notes
The UCLA Center for Intercultural Performance, EarthWays Foundation, and Foundation for World Arts implemented a 16-day, 54-event multidisciplinary festival in Los Angeles from Sept 14 - 29, 2002. The Festival provided opportunities for 2,000 artists to present their work in 42 sites across the city. An estimated audience of 30,000 people attended venues ranging in size from 80 to 6,000 seats. From the intimate Plaza Methodist Church to the Greek Theater, the festival spanned a distance of 65 miles. Of the 54 events, 51 were produced and presented independently while under the umbrella of the Festival. Of the 51, 24 were free to the public. The Festival produced three events; two of these were benefit fundraising events. We estimate that 3000 individuals-artists; faith, cultural, educational, community, arts, and environmental groups, as well as staff members made this festival a success.

Recognizing music as an expression of humanity's most profound aspirations and as a way to transcend borders of all kinds-linguistic, national, cultural, ideological, racial and religious-the success of the 2002 Festival was the result of an outpouring of interest and enthusiasm from community partners. Many of these partners were also a part of the 1999 World Festival of Sacred Music-The Americas, which was initiated by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The overwhelming response by all involved indicates that the WFSM-LA can be an ongoing part of the life of our diverse and complex city. With this, our second festival, we established organizational structures that will lead to long-term institutionalization and stabilization of the Festival.

to write a review


The people of the world need to find ways to appreciate each other
A rare compilation of wide range of works. Each speaks to spirit in deep and meaningful ways- Cannot play it often enough! A non commercial grass roots effort like this deserves wider recognition for the artists who are participating.

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

Highlighting some of the most evocative, compelling artists from the World Festival of Sacred Music in Los Angeles, this album takes us through thirteen tracks of deeply expressive, haunting and penetrating music with the overall theme of honoring diversity and inspiring appreciation of the interdependence of the planet. Mixing high quality world music of varying styles, on a spectrum between acoustic traditional to jazzy fusion, this album also straddles a kind of accessibility and easy listening quality of new age. We invite you to explore this outstanding album as well as the other companion CDs from other sections of this festival which was initiated by the Dalai Lama.

Alba Morokuni

It is a wonderfull cd.
It will be nice if every song is longer.
