About the Daniel Pearl Foundation:
The Daniel Pearl Foundation was formed in memory of journalist Daniel Pearl to further the ideals that inspired Daniel's life and work. The foundation's mission is to promote cross-cultural understanding through journalism, music, and innovative communications.
Daniel Pearl recognized the ability of music to bridge differences among people. In the spirit of Danny's love of music and commitment to dialogue, the Daniel Pearl Foundation launched Daniel Pearl World Music Days on October 10, 2002, which would have been Danny's 39th birthday. Using the power of music to promote tolerance and inspire respect for differences, Daniel Pearl World Music Days has grown to thousands of performances in over 60 countries. In 2005, World Music Days eStage was introduced, featuring an on-line gallery and radio station of music, poetry, art, articles, and dedications reflecting Danny’s lifetime of work connecting people through words and music.
