Arijahknow Live Wires took to the steps of City Hall this week as part of a new project to promote peace in Bermuda.

Campaigner Cleveland Simmons said the show was part of the Caravan programme, which is intended to help bring people together.

“The Caravan is a mobile stage that can go wherever is needed to promote peace and healing,” he said. “The country seems to be in a state in which it’s coming apart at the seams.”

The campaign was joined on Monday by Mayor of Hamilton Charles Gosling, the Governor, John Rankin, and Live Wires, who performed for the crowds.

Mr Simmons said further events are already in the pipeline, with organisers eager to partner with other groups to send a positive message.
