In homage to Afrika the music of People of Goodwill is based around the drum and always reflects a deep respect for the power of rhythm. The music of People of Goodwill freely uses the wide variety of popular music styles, including Jazz, Funk, Rock, Reggae, Rhythm & Blues, Latin, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban, that have evolved as a result of the Afrikan Diaspora - the movement over the past 500 years of people of Afrikan origin to all parts of the Americas and the other continents of the world. People of Goodwill takes special pride in being a band that reflects a unique blend of styles and cultures in both it's music and it's membership.

In it's performances People of Goodwill presents a combination of it's own original compositions and it's arrangements of select compositions by some of the most outstanding songwriters and musicians of our time.
