Playing for Change
On the heels of their recently completed summer run, the Playing For Change band returns to North America this fall for a national tour which kicks off October 13, at McEwan Hall in Calgary. The fall tour encompasses over 25 shows in major cities nationwide. The group will donate $1.00 of every ticket purchased to the Playing For Change Foundation.

Their 2010 fall tour is highlighted by the addition of famed Senegalese guitarist Ilon Ba (Baaba Maal) to the stellar Playing For Change band which includes percussionist Mohammed Alidu (Northern Ghana), vocalist Clarence Bekker (Netherlands/Suriname), vocals/harmonica Grandpa Elliott (New Orleans), vocals/percussionist Mermans Kenkosenki (DRC Congo), guitarist Jason Tamba (Kinshasa, the capital of DRC Congo) and vocalist Titi Tsira (Gugulethu, African township in the Western Cape).
