Tuesday 21st from 11:03 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. (EST), Nuestra Música will be celebrating International Peace Day. Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. We are dedicating the two hours to Latinx Singers and Songwriters that dedicated their career to the causes of Social Justice and Peace. Songs by Paco Ibañez, Los Olimareños, Violeta Parra, Maria Elena Walsh, Illapú, Víctor Jara, and many more.
