October 2nd: Brooklyn Ahimsa

The WORLD MARCH FOR PEACE AND NONVIOLENCE began with a sonic boom (non-nuclear of course) at Brooklyn Lyceum on Friday, Oct 2, 2009. From show opener RED BARAAT’s thunderous North Indian drums and brass intro to headliner EARTHDRIVER’s mothership funk version of “We Want Peace on Earth”, the Lyceum shook beneath the packed New York crowd’s stomping feet. Other performers included salsa great CHOCO ORTA, Brooklyn’s own alternative rock band THE CITIZENS and the folk trio MAHINA MOVEMENT. World March spokesperson Chris Wells summed the event up well in his midshow speech by saying “It appears the World March Rocks!”
