Radiohead, Coldplay, Pink Floyd, Police drummers ‘beat for peace’ in Sudan

Bands take part in new video

Drummers from Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Coldplay, Stornoway, Snow Patrol and The Police have launched a new video to aid a global bid for peace in Sudan.

The ‘Beat For Peace’ music clip is part of the Sudan365 campaign that aims to target a meeting of world leaders at the United Nations in New York on September 24. Watch footage of the video below.

Campaigners are calling on world leaders to prevent a return to war in Sudan ahead of a landmark referendum in January 2011.

Radiohead sticksman Phil Selway, Coldplay‘s Will Champion, Snow Patrol‘s Jonny Quinn, The Police drummer Stewart Copeland and Nick Mason from Pink Floyd feature in the music video.

“This drum beat has passed from Cairo to Accra, Barcelona, Sydney, Moscow and Tokyo, New York and Los Angeles,” said Coldplay‘s Will Champion. “It is a global cry for our leaders to increase their efforts to prevent widespread conflict returning to Sudan.”
