World Pulse World Wide Music ----An Idea

Sing and Dance Women

Music is another means of communication, publication, networking and advertisement. This is what I thought last night [I don't know if someone had thought about the same]. With the powerful voices in this great network worldwide, if we come up with videos in form of songs/music addressing for example Violence against women, human rights, peace and democracy, land and women, the power of the voice, networking with women world wide (WP)..... with the address of World Pulse (http://www.worldpulse.com) as the Top and bottom mission, the next step to the Listeners, I mean the listeners browsing and logging to get our message, share their own message, networking...
AND we distribute them to the local television and radio stations world wide, We could achieve great revolution rapidly world wide.

I do not know about other countries but in mine (Uganda), the Television and Radio stations do accept and use music videos at no cost. AND Ugandans like music.

I do not care the color, size, magnitude, type of your voice, you can sing sing and let the world know the unknown in you!. If we can collect videos from allover the world and do the Music with different messages I believe we shall captivate the whole world with the truth, the power of the voice, empowerment and network of world changers.

Good idea

Dear Nilima,
I am only proposing, if put in consideration, we will sing sing.

Love,

Beatrice

I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.

This is a wonderful thought

This is a wonderful thought and idea. It will be nice to embark upon. Your uganda is good to accept music at no cost. It is not so in Nigeria where you pay a huge amount of money to use the media.

Music is freedom for me

Thank you for such a wonderful article. For me music is my salvation, i am able to move in ways that words could never express my feelings. I am able to escape to another world thru music. I am truly in another dimension when the rhythms touch my spirit and hold on tight to my soul!!!

I feel libertaed with music!!

Love and light, Mia

Then you have two voices....

One in your golden throat and another in your magical body Mia!
Go on, show the world the power of both. As for me, be sure of alto back up and the clap, stumping of feet!!!!

Love,

Beatrice

Creative thoughts!

That would be awesome :) Thanks for the thought. Although I know that in Zimbabwe, you'd have to pay loads of money to air that, and well, it might still not be aired anyway because a group of 30 women singing about change is a recipe for chaos in a country so violently against change!!! So, it might work in some places, but sadly, not in all of our countries. Still a fascinating idea though!

from today i live out of my imagination
i am more than my yesterday
tomorrow i plant a new seed
nothing that lies behind easy
nothing that is ahead real
my within is all i have today

Suggestions

Dear Fungai,
Thank you for your comments.
This is how I look at it though; 1. We are not going to make our music different from the any other around the world. It is just people - us singing just like others have done and aired them on Television and Radio Stations.
The tone of Change is not going to abuse others, it is not going to segregate any side, it is just about what is happening in the world and what a better world ought to be .... just like some musicians have done already, eg Michael Jackson with the song "Heal the world". How wonderful will it be if women from allover the world come up with music with messages of change?!
Back to my personality, when I choose to do something I tend to use the challenges as opportunity. I tend to focus in the positive side than the negative side always.

Does this make sense Fungai?

Love

Beatrice

Music truly is a universal

Music truly is a universal language and I think for many people anywhere in the world music is liberating, it is an escape and it is empowering. This is also another way to bring youth and women around the world together for a common cause. Fantastic idea!
