Daniel Pearl – the Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped and
murdered by terrorists in 2002 in Pakistan – was a classically trained
violinist, an avid fiddler and a mandolin player who used his passion
for music to form friendships across cultural and verbal divides. Danny
lived a life that knew no geographical boundaries, with a spirit that knew no
prejudice. He joined musical groups in every community in which he lived,
leaving behind a long trail of musician-friends around the globe. Every
year around his October 10th birthday, musicians around the world reach
out in friendship to join in “Harmony for Humanity.”
