10 International Songs: Diplomacy Toolbox

In our interconnected world, embracing diverse cultures and fostering understanding across borders is paramount. To continue on the theme from our Citizen Diplomacy Certification, cultural diplomacy is a powerful tool in building bridges. Music, with its universal language, offers a powerful means to expand our cultural horizons and promote diplomatic engagement. These 10 international songs were recommended by our IVLP guests over the years from artists in their home country. By exploring these international songs, we not only immerse ourselves in diverse musical traditions but also deepen our understanding of different cultures and perspectives. You can also learn more about innovative diplomacy from the U.S. Department of State
