Towards the Peace on Earth

A young music journalist traces the mysterious suicide of twenty-seven year old prodigy South African jazz pianist Moses Molelekwa to Ananda DNA, a unique teacher and healer living on a musical farm. Around his whimsical attributes, a colourful group of characters and musicians gather to
experience life lived for the moment. Metaphors within metaphors provide a self-styled philosophy for healing of an acute illness. Life, death, near death, afterlife are all experienced through the sound and fury of being. giving birth to philosophies that charge the instincts of heart, mind
and soul with intuition. This is a story of soul searching to the sound of Africa.
