“Sonic Peacemakers: Atif Aslam, Lanny Cordola and Todd Shea got together in July to perform together during Atif Aslam’s U.S. summer tour. Events to raise awareness about Sonic Peacemakers were held in Washington DC, Los Angeles and Seattle attended by dignitaries such as Ambassador Wendy Chamberlain of The Middle East Institute, Pervaiz Lodhie of NCHD, PAL-C and LEDtronics, Dr. A.S. Abbasi and Aakid Ahmad of Convergence and The U.S. Muslim engagement Initiative, and Sonic Peacemakers Ambassadors Mark Levine (Professor of Middle Eastern Studies at UC-Irvine), Gilby Clarke (former guitarist with Guns ‘n’ Roses), and Michelle Coltrane (Daughter of the legendary John Coltrane).”

“Lanny has set up recording sessions at Gilby Clarke’s studio to continue work on the conceptual album “The Dreamer Awakes” and will then go back to Pakistan with Todd and Atif to record with members of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s band and singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan at Mekaal Hasan’s studio in Lahore.”

Sonic Peacemakers is planning to release its first two or three songs by October or November.
