“New Collaboration Brings Hope of World Peace through Music-
Kenji Williams, BELLA GAIA, Joins Project Peace on Earth”
Internationally acclaimed musician and film maker, Kenji Williams, BELLA GAIA Founder, Composer, and Director, has been announced as the newest member of the Musical Ambassador team for the global peace organization, Project Peace on Earth.
Led by Steve Robertson, its Founder, Executive Producer & CEO, Project Peace on Earth LLC (PPOE) is a Los Angeles-based organization committed to bringing greater individual and collective world peace through sacred music concerts and other peace efforts on a global scale.
“I am extremely honored to be a part of such an incredible group of artists, producers, scholars, scientists, healers, and writers. Some of these artists have already changed my life,” stated Kenji Williams in response to his being included as a Musical Ambassador for PPOE.
PPOE recently held a concert at the Bethlehem Convention Palace in Bethlehem, Palestine that brought thousands of people together live, and tens of millions from every nation and faith through the full concert broadcast which benefitted UNRWA and Palestinian Refugee Youth.
“Sacred Music is the most profound and expedient way to touch the heart and create a direct communion with the Divine. The mission of Project Peace on Earth concert series is to deliver the most spiritually authentic musical experiences so that people are inspired to discover their inner most life calling and courageously act on it towards the overall goal of individual and world peace,” explains Steve Robertson.
Kenji Williams is an award winning filmmaker, music producer, and classically-trained violinist. Blending music, visual arts, science and philosophy, BELLA GAIA, which means “Beautiful Earth,” simulates space flight and displays the captivating beauty of planet Earth as seen through the eyes of astronauts.
Williams, in collaboration with NASA, brings this live performance against a large-screen backdrop of orbiting visualizations of the Earth as seen from space. Using multiple art forms, Kenji Williams and the other artists in BELLA GAIA, strive to transform the beliefs held by audience members about the planet.
“Our entire reality – seen and unseen, here on Earth, and throughout the Universe, is composed of vibration and energy. Art, and especially music, uses vibration to open a portal to these powerful forces. I believe we have the potential to be closest to spirit when we are at ease (at peace), and aligned with this vibration and energy,” comments Mr. Williams.
Kenji Williams has collaborated with Trance group, Medicine Drum, world famous DJ, John Digweed, visionary painter Alex Grey, and evolutionary philosopher Ken Wilber. His work has appeared at The Gates Planetarium Dome Theater (Denver Museum of Nature and Science), large music festivals around the world, mainstream television, and used for exotic fashion shows at Japanese Temples. Additionally, Pioneer, Panasonic, and Sony corporations have sponsored Williams with technology to support his artistic vision. Combining unique skills in film and music, Williams has earned international film awards from the CSC to Sundance, and exhibited work at the Smithsonian Institute.
Invoking unity and shared concern for the world by displaying the extraordinary beauty and connectedness of the planet through musical live performances are at the heart of both Project Peace on Earth and BELLA GAIA. The live concerts and worldwide telecast from Bethlehem are the first of many planned concert events, TV, and film content, centered on the subjects of personal transformation and world peace. PPOE aims to bring superstar musicians, performing inspiring and sacred music, to some of the worlds’ most sacred sites.
“With Steve Robertson’s vision, I feel that our collaboration of such talent devoted to peace, will create a true and meaningful impact with repercussions well beyond the events. I look forward to collaborating and contributing my compositions, film work, and live performance to the Project Peace on Earth,” explained Williams.
