In 2014 the Playing For Change Band played over 75 concerts in 11 countries spreading a message of love, unity and peace through music.
Here are some photos from the road on a slide show over one of the songs that opens many of our shows: “Biendans”, by Jason Tamba
The creation of the Playing For Change Band has helped us to realize a dream of uniting the musicians we met during our journey on one stage. The result is a unique fusion of influences and talents in constant evolution since the first concerts in 2009. Grandpa Elliott, legendary street musician from New Orleans, sings alongside Clarence Bekker (Netherlands), Titi Tsira (South Africa), Tal Ben Ari “Tula” (Israel), Jason Tamba
(Congo) and Mermans Mosengo
(Congo). The rhythm section features Louis Mhlanga
(Zimbabwe) on lead guitar, Papa Orbe Ortiz (Cuba) on the bass, Peter Bunetta (USA) on drums, Roberto Luti on guitar (Italy) on Keiko Komaki on keyboard and Paulo Heman on percussions.
Playing for Change grew from a humble dream to make the world a little brighter, and now supports musicians all over the world.
