NOSI Music presents: PLAY IT FORWARD II
- A Holiday Benefit Event with Parties 4 Peace
Parties 4 Peace
Twice As Proper
Keep it Movin'
Are you ready to PLAY IT FORWARD?
Join us Friday December 21st as we gather together promoters, djs, industry types, and music lovers alike one more time this year for a festive night of music and revelry. This time it's for a good cause, several good causes actually.
We know that our city is still recovering from the catastrophe of Hurricane Sandy. Parties 4 Peace will be donating the proceeds from PLAY IT FORWARD via Peace Boat US, a licensed 501 (c) (3) non-profit international organization who is directly involved in the relief effort.
Another percentage of the funds will be donated to support the Music and Arts Peace Academy (MAPA) that will be held aboard the Peace Boat in 2013. This floating music workshop will be attended by deserving young artists from Latin America, who are nominated and selected by local music groups to attend. The funds we generate will go towards sponsoring these attendees.
Rarely do we get a chance to do what we love solely for the benefit of preserving the future of music. NOSI Music has dedicated itself the the discovery and development of young talent worldwide, and specifically in Latin America. In order to preserve, protect, and proliferate our shared vision of peace and love through music, we must be leaders in it's creation.
NOSI Music and the supporters you see mentioned here could not be more excited about our involvement in this project. All supporting artists and labels will be recognized as donors and sponsors to MAPA 2013, as representatives of NYC's dance music community.
Everyone involved in this event is donating their time, their talent, and their love to this night. We thank you to all of you for your continued support.
MAPA 2013 (Music & Art Peace Academy)
The MAPA project invites musicians, artists, photographers, designers, writers, actors, and videographers who are interested in creating a project together to promote a culture of peace through music and art while traveling together onboard the Peace Boat ship for ten days for the (MAPA) Music & Art Peace Academy.
Participating artists will work together to record music, create art with various communities and construct a common piece of work that focuses on sustainability and international peace as its main theme. After the ten day voyage, we hope to hold exhibits with the works created in various cities around the world.

PARTIES 4 PEACE
Parties 4 Peace was founded in the year 2002 in the heart of the club culture of Japan and continues to raise awareness through music and art as it travels from Tokyo to New York City. We invite artists and promoters to volunteer their time and talent to help raise awareness and fundraise for important international campaigns to promote environmental awareness, human rights and sustainability across the globe. Having organized parties in the underground club scene of Tokyo, we have expanded our events to Santiago (Chile), Caracas (Venezuela) and New York City (USA).

Peace Boat is an international non-profit and non-governmental organization that works to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment through educational programs, cooperative projects and advocacy activities on global peace voyages. Peace Boat carries out its main activities through a chartered passenger ship that travels the world on peace voyages. The ship creates a neutral, mobile space and enables people to engage across borders in dialogue and mutual cooperation at sea, and in the ports that we visit.
Parties 4 Peace is now fundraising to support youth programs onboard the Peace Boat that promote sustainability during their global voyages in the Latin American region. For more information on our travel throughout the world, please visit our website:
