The Playing For Change Foundation is dedicated to connecting the world through music by providing resources to musicians and their communities around the world.
The organization has a new CD/DVD release, ‘Playing for Change: Songs Around the World’ due April 28.
The album’s first track is a cover of Ben E. King’s Stand by Me performed by 37 musicians from the Netherlands, Brazil, Spain and Russia, among other countries. The video for the song already has been viewed nearly 8 million times on YouTube since November. The artists also take on a couple Bob Marley classics. A version of War/No More Trouble features U2’s Bono, and American blues singer Keb’ Mo’ and Spain’s Manu Chao perform on One Love.
