In 1998, all authors organized in music rights societies, i.e. musicians from 124 countries all over the world, were invited by SMT Rome to "compose original songs inspired by the theme of peace". The contest announcement was published by all international music rights societies as well as on its own internet site (SMT Rome) and official sites connected with the Jubilee Year 2000.
In a diligent selection process, a high-ranking international jury chose the 22 winning songs from a large number of entries from 60 countries all over the world. Personalities like Hal Uplinger (Live Aid) were involved in the organisation of the final concert.
Due to organisational difficulties the final concert was cancelled. The authors have now chosen their project website and individual websites to make their messages heard.
The artists cover a great and fascinating diversity of music styles such as BLUES, POP, ROCK, FOLK, WORLD MUSIC and more.
