"Playing for Change: Peace Through Music" is a documentary by Mark Johnson about the simple but transformative power of music. The film brings together musicians from around the world — blues singers in a waterlogged New Orleans, chamber groups in Moscow, a South African choir — to collaborate on songs familiar and new, in the effort to foster a new, greater understanding of our commonality. The Playing For Change Foundation is dedicated to connecting the world through music by providing resources (facilities, supplies, educational programs, etc) to musicians and their communities around the world.
Please support this effort! The film soundtrack and DVD will be in stores on 28.4.2009.
