Across religious and political divides – Artist Profile: The Bridge Project

In February 2002 a young Jewish-American journalist working for the Wall Street Journal was abducted by extremists in Pakistan and murdered in a brutal and vicious way. His name was Daniel Pearl. In response to their son’s very public killing, Daniel’s mother and father, Ruth and Judea Pearl, established a Foundation with the principal aim of unifying the world’s religions through music. Their belief was that the best response to the murder of their son was to undermine the evil that caused his death in the first place.
