Now Available! The all-new Playing For Change CD/DVD release PLAYING FOR CHANGE LIVE
A special 2-disc CD/DVD package documenting their triumphant 2009 world tour.
What started as a simple concept to virtually bring musicians from different cultures together via technology for the common purpose of promoting peace through music, has now resulted in a bonafide cultural phenomenon. The Playing For Change story has captured imaginations around the world and their inspiring mix of togetherness, positivity and sterling musicianship has undeniably created a movement and surprised the music industry.
And now Playing For Change presents a special two-disc CD/DVD containing a ten-song audio CD and a fourteen-track DVD, documenting the Playing For Change Band’s triumphant 2009 world-tour.
On Playing For Change Live, the PFC band is captured all over the world including riveting performances from the U.K.’s Glastonbury Festival, Vancouver, Madrid, Los Angeles and the Santa Monica Pier where the project’s extraordinary journey began. The band’s incredible energy and brilliant musicianship is evident on Bob Marley’s “One Love,” a medley of 4 Non Blondes’ and Bobby McFerrin’s ‘What’s Up”/“Don’t Worry Be Happy”, the 1959 American R&B gem “Fannie Mae (with Keb’ Mo!) and original band compositions like Titi Tsira’s “Fela ngaye” and Louis Mhlanga’s “Children Of The World” just to name a few. Guest appearances also include reggae legends, Toots Hibbert on the Otis Redding classic “I’ve Got Dreams To Remember” and Ziggy Marley on his own “Love Is My Religion.”
