"Playing For Change" - a remarkable music project uniting musicians from around the world
An amazing music project, with performers recorded individually around the world for a CD + DVD, that wonderfully highlights the rich tapestry of human culture(s) and shows the power of music to unite, to create fraternity and through that unity to communicate a joy that is contagious.
"Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. And with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with the world."
