Playing For Change is proud to present a new video of the song "What A Wonderful World" featuring Grandpa Elliott with children's choirs across the globe. In these hard times children and music bring us hope for a better future. Today we celebrate life and change the world one heart and one song at a time!!
We are proud to have partnered with Okaïdi clothing in the production of this Song Around the World. Now through the end of the year, Okaïdi will provide 1 euro from the sale of each t-shirt to the Playing For Change Movement. Funds raised through this campaign will go to support PFC musicians and the PFC Foundation's music education programs around the world. Thank you for your support of the Playing For Change Movement!!
The PFC Band's "Back To Your Roots" tour played venues across North America in the Spring of 2012. This performance of "A Change is Gonna Come" was one of the highlights of an amazing show, Live at Folsom, CA. Grandpa may be a blind man, but he sees the light!
playingforchange.com/episodes/46 This video is the first track on our new album, PFC 2 – Songs Around The World, coming May 31st!! We begin the journey in West Africa, in the ancient village of Kirina, Mali. The instruments start to play, and we hear the familiar words “don’t worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be alright.” This timeless message invites us on a musical journey through time and space. Together we continue to connect the world through music.
playingforchange.com/episodes/32 - Whenever the Playing For Change Band takes the stage, there is always a tremendous amount of love and energy in the air. For this very special performance it was even more palpable, as the band was joined by many of our friends featured in our various Songs Around the World: Tula's amazing vocals, Roberto Luti playing the National steel slide guitar, Francois Viguie on the bongos, Stefano Tomaselli on the sax, Venkat playing the tablas, and the beautiful choir vocals of Sinamuva.
This performance served as a powerful milestone in the evolution of Playing For Change. Seeing so many talented musicians from all different cultures and walks of life united on stage for this very special night was a physical manifestation of our mission: to connect the world and bring peace through music.
