About M&E

Turtle in the Reef


Music & the Earth International is an educational and philosophical resource for environmental consciousness-raising, through the practice and appreciation of world music. It is guided by a planetary vision, of a world in which, through music, people  can cross any boundary, to converse about, respond to, and heal from shared environmental challenges.  

M&E seeks to give voice to nature, through music, in three ways: 1) raise awareness about the needs of the biosphere; 2) foster consciousness of the links between humanity and nature, which have been severed by anthropocentrism; and 3) celebrate humanity’s cultural capacity to live sustainably, which can be reclaimed through the choices we make.
