playing for change

This is the coolest thing. My honey came across it, and these guys at Playing for Change started this project with the idea in mind that music could bring peace. They used digital technology to bring musicians together from all over the world, and mixed their music together to create a single piece of music. This video is the result of that process.

They are continuing to use music performances to raise funds and better the musicians' individual communities through a non-profit foundation. It's a worthy cause, and the music is so fine. It comes from the heart...some of these guys had never played professionally. They just have a gift for it and they do it.

Music can unite people. What a concept.
