Leading American and International Musical Artists to Perform at Launch of U.S. Department of State’s Global Music Diplomacy Initiative

The U.S. Department of State announced today that leading American and international artists from genres ranging from opera to rock to hip hop will headline the launch of the Department’s Global Music Diplomacy Initiative on September 27, 2023.  The initiative leverages public-private partnerships with U.S. companies and non-profit organizations to elevate music as a diplomatic tool to promote peace and democracy.

The launch, which will be held at the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., will chronicle the past, present, and future of music diplomacy, and feature live performances by Jamie Barton, GAYLE, Dave Grohl, Mickey Guyton, Herbie Hancock, Christopher Jackson, LADAMA, Aimee Mann, Rakim, Armani White, DJ 2-Tone, and a video message from U2 Lead Singer Bono.  It will culminate with several announcements that will shape the future of music diplomacy, ranging from public-private partnerships with American music industry leaders to educational opportunities for youth globally.

Through these efforts, the Department aims to cultivate a music ecosystem globally to create economic equity and strengthen the creative economy, expand societal opportunity and inclusion, and increase access to education.

The launch of the Global Music Diplomacy Initiative is sponsored by YouTube, Chevron, The Boeing Company, Wasserman Foundation, United Airlines, Adrienne Arsht, and John F.W. Rogers.  The Department has partnered with the American Pops Orchestra who worked with Nouveau Productions to produce this event, supported in full by donations from the launch sponsors.

This initiative builds on the bipartisan PEACE Through Music Diplomacy Act, which President Biden signed into law last year.  It will augment current U.S. efforts, which consist of myriad public diplomacy exchange programs that use music as a diplomatic tool, including American Music AbroadArts EnvoyCenter StageNext Level, and OneBeat.
