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.”
