Bill Moyers called it a remarkable example of "the simple yet transformative power of music... to touch something in each of us." Variety acknowledged it as "a great showcase for just what incredible, thoroughly accessible popular music is being made worldwide. Utilizing innovative mobile audio/video techniques, Playing for Change (PFC) records musicians outdoors in cities and townships worldwide. They've travelled from post-Katrina New Orleans to post-apartheid South Africa, from the remote beauty of the Himalayas to the religious diversity of Jerusalem. Their talents are captured in myriad environments: under the sun and beneath the streetlights... in public parks, plazas and promenades... in doorways, on cobblestone streets, amid hilly pueblos. Their performances are subsequently combined in allowing them to collaborate - albeit separated by hundreds, or even thousands, of miles.

This CD and DVD set is available online and at Starbucks. Do the world a favor - get a stack of them and give them to friends, neighbors and anyone who needs a lift. These disks capture something incredibly precious - the simple joy of making music together. By taking the same song and flowing it seamlessly around the world from instrument to instrument, singer to singer and country to country, it demonstrates that we are indeed one world. However much the styles and settings may differ, or politics and language divide us, we can all come together and laugh and sing and "be all right."
