Following the trail of the mysterious suicide of 27 year old prodigy, jazz pianist Moses Molelekwa; the writer lands at the knee of self discovery. Ananda DNA, a French mystic, mescalito and healer provides a terrific scripture, enjoyable metaphysics and amusing spirituality on which a university of celebration is founded. Set on the Musical Energy Loud Truth (Melt
2000) record label farm and during the freedom era of South Africa's miracle peaceful transformation, a whimsical and colourful group of creative characters come together to share in the metaphors, philosophies and permanent reminders of being human.

“A very readable story, the reader goes away amazed, with a revived spirit that co-creation in music can indeed find causes of illness, and bring joy, growth, and healing to the collective consciousness.” Carol Martin All Jazz Radio

TO THE PEACE ON EARTH IS ACCOMPANIED BY A MUSIC PLAYLIST FROM THE MELT2000 MUSIC ARCHIVE

  “Melt2000 projects harnessed and promoted energy and a spirit of activism and thoughtfulness. It was never in an overt political social way, it was simply in the spirit of doing, creating and making magic. It became the documentation heritage of post-apartheid music. People were coming together and ?nding their truth beyond race. ”

"The events take place in South Africa, in a post-democracy climate of change. The struggles that had taken place below ground are suddenly above ground. South Africa at the time was so beautiful and enticing."

:"In the spirit of doing, creating and making magic, this catalogue became the documentation heritage of post-apartheid music." Extracts
