Playing For Change

Playing For Change: Song Around the World | Stand By Me from Concord Music Group on Vimeo.

An award winning documentary "Playing for Change: Peace Through Music" is a documentary aimed at promoting peace through the medium of music. The above video was taken from the documentary and will be available for digital download in the near future along with other songs found in the documentary.

The video above displays a collective group of individuals, worlds apart, singing parts of the same song and playing instruments to build that very same song. What they get is an awe-inspiring original adaptation of song put together by common folk, just playing for change, all around the world. It is truly a neat thing to see and I am sure the film makers went away from this project with more than just a film.

Check it out above and you can check out their website here.
