Nassiri launches peace initiative

Singer unveils 'Love'

CANNES — Singer-songwriter and peace activist Nassiri is launching his global peace initiative Monday in Cannes. 

Among the initiatives he is unveiling is the premiere of a short called “Love Sees No Color,” which is sung in 15 languages by children in 18 countries and filmed by 18 directors. It will premiere Tuesday at 10 p.m. at a VIP media event at the Century Club in Cannes.

Nassiri commissioned and financed the production of “Love Sees No Color” in 2006 as the launching pad for the Nassiri World Peace Foundation.  “The music and message are intended to transcend all ages, genders, race and religions to help create a harmonized, peaceful world,” Nassiri said. Wednesday marks World Peace Day on the Croisette. 

A directors panel kicks off the day featuring helmers Stephan Elliott and Yariv Horowitz, among others. The day continues with a celebration of music, food and culture and performances from a range of world music stars, among them Nassiri and the Momar Gaye Trio from Senegal.

Nassiri is also an event chair of amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS benefit dinner and auction Wednesday.
