About Make Music Matter

Make Music Matter helps to heal trauma and empower marginalized voices with its innovative music therapy program Healing in Harmony. Initially designed for trauma survivors in conflict and post-conflict zones, it has been clinically proven to reduce PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

Healing in Harmony artists emerge with a renewed sense of agency and self-worth. Their original songs are professionally produced and serve as advocacy tools to promote their rights and combat stigma.

From survivors of sexual and gender-based violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo to young Syrian refugees with disabilities and survivors of generational trauma in Indigenous communities in Canada, Healing in Harmony has helped transform the lives of over 11,000 individuals in eight countries worldwide.

The music is released on all major streaming platforms via A4A Records, with global distribution through Warner Music Canada. A ground-breaking new publishing model helps to ensure that all royalties from the songs are sent back to the artists and their communities, regardless of socio-economic circumstances.
