Interview with artist, activist and music composer Peter Jam

I do not feel comfortable to talk about human rights alone, as I am a core believer that all are deeply interconnected.

What does a typical day for you look like?
This is an interesting yet critical question as I try to tune my life not on a routine, but on the mantra that every day is a new day to inspire, serve and act. Meanwhile, I plan meetings and arrangements for the near future knowing that things won’t work exactly as I want, but when seen from the bigger picture, they can even be better.

How would you describe your music and did it change over the years?
I wouldn’t say it changed, but it probably widened and expanded. With the goal to inspire and get the message through, in a very moment in my life I realized that as a cultured music composer I will write songs in different styles and genres to get the message through. Meanwhile, rock is always there but the compass is so diverse. In my last album ‘Universality,’ I even included Arabic (for Lebanon) and Armenian songs.

What human rights organisations do you support and why?
I would say global rights organizations, which include human rights, animal rights and environmental rights. I do not feel comfortable to talk about human rights alone, as I am a core believer that all are deeply interconnected. As far as organizations go, the list is so long I am afraid to start counting and miss out on any! I try to cooperate with many, but I can say Art Army and The Love Foundation are on the top of my list: I do not just collaborate with them but am the Country Coordinator with the Global Love Foundation, and Art Army’s Revolutionary Regional Leader.

Can you tell us something about the book you are writing?
It is a spiritual/intellectual book with simplified philosophies, based on my own experiences and endeavors. I share my personal views about so-called cliche words and subjects such as love, peace, freedom, life, time, and relationships, among others, with the aim of inspire readers to think different and act different for a better self and a better world.
