Dwiki Dharmawan WORLD PEACE ORCHESTRA celebrating diversity at Sixth Global Forum UNAOC Gala Dinner

Dwiki Dharmawan conducted The “WORLD PEACE ORCHESTRA” performing at Sixth Global Forum UNAOC Gala Dinner held at Nusa Dua Convention Center, Bali 30 August 2014.

“The privilege of hosting such an important event is an acknowledgement of Indonesias effort in promoting harmony among civilizations through inter-religion and inter-media dialogues.” Said Dwiki.

As the host of the Sixth UNAOCs Global Forum, Indonesia is also keen to strengthen the understanding of pluralism, as Indonesia alone has long followed the concept of “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika” or “Unity in Diversity” and also uses it as its national motto. Dwiki Dharmawan performing with his 60 pcs World Peace Orchestra including Balinese Gamelan Jegog featured also Indonesian Diva Lea Simanjuntak, Indonesian idol’s Mike Mohede and Palestinian oud player Kamal Musallam. The concert begins with Balinese traditional Janger . Dwiki Dharmawan, who is known for music that combines tradition and innovation, invited Kamal Musallam then joins the orchestra for several pieces. The concert ends with Dwiki’s Spirit of Peace, a work deeply marked by the passions of the composer.
