Via my friend Jesse Matthew Elliot of Idyllwerx art, design and film production. Playing for Change is a “multimedia movement created to inspire, connect and bring peace to the world through music.” A documentary film and music will be available in the spring of 2009, but for now you can watch a really beautiful clip of musicians across the world singing, “Stand by Me.” The participants are mainly street musicians which is why I think it all works so well, buskers have heart. The project also supports a music school and arts center in South Africa and Tibetan refugee centers in India and Nepal.
