Sharon Katz & The Peace Train


Grammy-nominated South African musician & music therapist, Sharon Katz, founded The Peace Train in her home country in 1993 to help Nelson Mandela spread his vision.

Sharon worked with her colleague, Nonhlanhla Wanda, to form South Africa's first 500-voice multiracial and multicultural youth choir; backed it with their professional band; and took the performers across South Africa by train - The Peace Train - to promote social justice and democratic elections. Since then, Sharon Katz & The Peace Train have recorded numerous albums, performed worldwide, and led peace and reconciliation projects on several continents.

Sharon brings the same passion and musical talents to creating The Peace Train's tours and projects across America and worldwide.
