The Playing for Change website is an inspiring site featuring some great little videos showing global online collaborations between people worldwide. They say – ‘Playing For Change is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music. The idea for this project came from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people’. When the site started in 2002 the co-founders (Mark Johnson and Whitney Kroenke) set about visiting the streets of America with a mobile recording studio and cameras looking for talent and inspiration. After meeting and hearing a street musician (Roger Ridley) they hit on the idea of a ‘Song around the World’ which involves a global collaboration of people around the world playing different parts to the same song. the results are a series of ‘Song around the World’ videos posted on their website. Theres more to the website like a Playing for Change live band with live dates posted and link to the Playing for Change foundation. lots to discover their and looks like a worthwhile cause so go check em out.
