Buy Me This: Playing for Change

a blogumn by CH

I heard about this on NPR last week and had to check it out. I love the idea of many musicians from all over the world playing the same song edited into one track. It’s strangely hypnotic to watch and it’s for a great cause.

from the website:

“Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. And with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with the world.”
