Playing For Change is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break boundaries and overcome distances between people.
The main focus of the project is to record audio and video musicians performing in their natural settings and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos that we call Songs Around The World.
The idea of the project arises from the conviction that music disarms borders and helps us overcome our differences. Regardless of our geographical, political, economic, spiritual or ideological origins, music has the universal power to unite us as inhabitants of the same planet.
Playing For Change, that’s the way music was meant to be.Keith Richards, The Rolling Stones
The production team has put together a mobile recording studio, using the material used in the best studios, to travel the world and record, where the music will take them.
During the realization of this project, they realized that it was not enough to record and share the music: the producers wanted to find a way to contribute something to the communities they got to know throughout their travels. Thus was born, in 2007, the Playing For Change Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the creation and development of music schools for these communities.
The last chapter of the Playing For Change movement has been the Playing For Change Band. Bringing together extraordinary musicians from around the world, this musical group demonstrates the power that comes from the union of cultures. For audiences who see and listen to musicians who have traveled thousands of miles to meet on stage and sing together, the unifying power of music leaves no room for doubt.
