Playing for Change: Peace through Music

Playing for Change (PFC), an organization aimed at bringing the world together through music, has a documentary that premiers on PBS throughout the month of August.

From PFC:
'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.'

The songs are moving, from Stany by Me to War/No More Trouble , the idea inspirational and the artists involved very talented.

Matador is giving away free cds, but you've got to be on Twitter.
