Playing for Change – Peace through Music performed by Musicians around the World: Musiker aus unterschiedlichen Ländern spielen gemeinsam und gleichzeitig Songs für eine bessere Welt:

1. Stand by Me: „Four years ago while walking down the street in Santa Monica, CA the voice of Roger Ridley singing “Stand By me” was heard from a block away. His voice, soul and passion set us on a course around the world to add other musicians to his performance. This song transformed Playing For Change from a small group of individuals to a global movement for peace and understanding. This track features over 35 musicians collaborating from all over the world. They may have never met in person, but in this case, the music does the talking„.

2. One Love: “Let’s get together and feel alright”. While recording and filming in Dharmsala India, where we planned to add some Tibetan singers to this track we passed by a small record shop on the side of the road. The display featured about 50 Tibetan CD covers and one Bob Marley album in the middle. This song around the world is in dedication to the love inside each of us. We can achieve far more together as a human race than we ever can apart. One Love„.

3. Don’t Worry: „Don’t Worry“ is the first original song around the world featured by Playing For Change.

As the song states. „Let’s don’t worry my brother, in this world we are all the same, we must find peace…“ The video features over 20 musicians from 4 continents who have never met in person, but are connected through the message and the music„.

4. Chanda Mama: „This Song Around The World is a folk tune from Chennai, India. We started the track in New Orleans and added musicians from the across the globe before finally delivering it the people of it’s origin. We ended up in Chennai recording and filming the vocals from the Oneness Choir. The track has a feeling of perseverance and joy and features vocalists from four continents„.

5. War, No More Trouble: „As we made our way around the world we encountered love, hate, rich and poor, black and white, and many different religious groups and ideologies. It became very clear that as a human race we need to transcend from the darkness to the light and music is our weapon of the future. This song around the world features musicians who have seen and overcome conflict and hatred with love and perseverance. “We don’t need more trouble, what we need is love”. The spirit of Bob Marley always lives on„.
