Playing For Change

"Playing for Change is a multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace to the world through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one human race. And with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with the world." Taken direct from http://playingforchange.com

In the spirit of the simple love for music and all that moves you I thought this was perfect for this project. We sometimes forget that some of the best talents don't always get the chance to make it big. This is a brilliant idea, and one that has been put together in such a beautiful way. Here are some selected gems from a brilliant collection.
