Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds…

The Peace Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song. We strive to present a diversity of music. While the focus is on folk music, we have also presented songs in the genre of rock-n-roll, jazz, and reggae.
