[ReviewAZON asin=”B000BTC5LW” display=”inlinepost”]London, Jan 10 (IANS) Drummers from the groups Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Snow Patrol are taking part in the Beat for Peace campaign, a documentary which calls for an end to conflict in the African country after millions died in the civil war there, which ended in 2005, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The rockers from the bands have teamed up to help prevent any more bloodshed in Sudan.

The documentary, which is part of the wider Sudan365 campaign, features the musicians alongside other artists from Sudan, Australia and Japan.

“I wanted to be involved in this project because I think music is such a powerful way of bringing people together. Of course, I’m biased in thinking that what’s underpinning it all is always the beat – always drummers,” said Radiohead’s Phil Selway, who is taking part in the drive.

“Hopefully this film will show that together people can make a huge noise and through this film I hope people’s focus will be brought back to what is happening in Sudan over this very important next year,” he added.
