Exclusive Premiere | Playing For Change - Clandestino

The Playing For Change multimedia movement aims to inspire, connect and bring peace to the world through music. Playing For Change founder Mark Johnson realized that while each culture has its own language, musicians from around the world can connect using the common language of music. On June 17 Playing For Change 3 - Sounds Around The World will be released on CD/DVD and includes performances from Keith Richards, Sara Bareilles, Taj Mahal, Toots Hibbert from Toots & The Maytals, Los Lobos, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Keb Mo, and Andres Calamaro, in addition to a song produced by Jackson Browne.

Today we're pleased to premiere the video for "Clandestino" off Playing For Change 3 - Sounds Around The World, which features musicians from around the world collaborating on the track including Manu Chao, David Hidalgo of Los Lobos and Cuban bassist Papa Orbe Ortiz. “‘Clandestino’ is a song of the people and this video represents the hearts and spirits of all those in search of a better world. This Playing For Change version began with an Oud master in Morocco and gypsies in Budapest and then we layered bass, percussion, strings and vocals from Manu Chao and friends until it formed into a Global Roots Reggae-Latin Jam around the world,” Mark Johnson notes about the song.
