My friend Thom found these guys, bought the album, listens to nothing but, accosts strangers on the street and forces his headphones onto them, then goes home and listens to the album all over again.
Playing For Change are trying to bring about peace through music, collecting musicians from all over the world to sing and play ‘together’ songs about peace and love, man. As they say on their YouTube channel:
The act of playing music with people of different cultures, religions, economics and politics is a powerful statement. It shows that we can find ways of working together and sharing our experiences with one another in a positive way. Music has the power to break down the walls between cultures, to raise the level of human understanding.
Check out all five songs, and then join Grandpa Elliot’s facebook appreciation group. You’ll want to!
