…is greatly appreciated. Thank you!


Since its beginning in 2007, people around the world have been inspired and re-connected to their inner music through the works of Song Without Borders.

Our first projects focused on the power of intuitive songmaking.

The Honoring recording (2008) features spontaneous songs recorded during empowerment ceremonies around the world; SongSourcing Trackpack One (2009) offers a series of background soundtracks designed for anyone to discover the joy of improvisational songmaking.

Our award-winning film series, initiated with Shining Night: A Portrait of Composer Morten Lauridsen (2012), was followed up with our second feature-length documentary,
In Search of the Great Song (2016), incorporating footage of interviews, natural sounds and music recordings from around the world.

Current Project

SongRise: Beyond the Fear of Singing is now in development, focusing on the personal healing which arises from accepting one’s own voice. Our third documentary will incorporate interviews made with people around the world over the past several years together with new material. We invite your generous donation to help complete this project. Thank you for your contribution!
