Artist - Playing for Change
The global music collective 'Playing For Change' presents their first-ever live recording; a specially priced 2 disc CD/DVD package featuring performances from their highly successful 2009 world tour!
And my goodness, what a performance this CD/DVD holds on its hallowed discs! With guest performances from Ziggy Marley and Toots Hibbert, Playing For Change is an extraordinary effort uniting musicians and vocalists from diverse parts of the world.
The PFC band are captured all over the world including the UK's Glastonbury Festival, Vancouver, Madrid, Los Angeles and the Santa Monica Pier where the project’s extraordinary journey began. The band’s incredible energy and brilliant musicianship is evident on Bob Marley’s “One Love,” a medley of 4 Non Blondes’ and Bobby McFerrin’s ‘What’s Up”/“Don’t Worry Be Happy”, the 1959 American R&B gem “Fannie Mae (with Keb’ Mo!) and original band compositions like Titi Tsira’s “Fela ngaye” and Louis Mhlanga’s “Children Of The World” just to name a few.
As mentioned above, guest appearances also include reggae legends, Toots Hibbert on the Otis Redding classic “I’ve Got Dreams To Remember” and Ziggy Marley on his own “Love Is My Religion.”
The DVD portion of the set includes a 90-minute film featuring exclusive interviews, behind-the-scenes and performance footage. You can't ask for much more than that, now can you!
This is quite an amazing, wonderful both audible and visual experience to behold, I promise you. For, what they are trying to do is simple: to bring peace to the world through music.
