Simon Broughton TedxKish

Can music save the world?

It’s a provocative and surprising question, but one worth asking. Over the year’s I’ve been involved with world music, I’ve seen the way it can break down borders and bring people together. In my TEDx talk on the Iranian island of Kish, I talk about musicians I’ve met in Romania, India, Morocco and, of course, Iran.

An enemy is simply someone whose story you haven’t yet heard,’ goes an old saying. And I’d add, ‘or someone whose music you haven’t yet heard.’
