Musicians without Borders (MwB), established in 1999, is a global network organization using the power of music for healing and reconciliation in areas torn by war and conflict. From Woman to Woman is a collaborative project between Musicians without Borders (Netherlands) and Snaga Zene (meaning 'Women Power') based in Bosnia i Hercegovina. The project uses music to address severe, persistent war-related trauma among women in Eastern Bosnia. More specifically, From Woman to Woman introduces the use of the voice and the body - singing and body percussion in the broadest sense of the word - as a powerful supplement to existing medical and psychosocial support programs. These activities, at their core, are aimed at facilitating the healing process of women who are deeply haunted by traumatic experiences of violence, dislocation, and the loss of dear ones, during the ethnic "cleansing" in the Srebrenica region of Bosnia, in 1995.
