Hello Everyone, here is my latest update from the road with the PFC crew.
Everyday is a blessing with Playing For Change; we travel the world and meet different people offering us all greater insight into humanity and the power of music. Today was another great day of filming and recording with the Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars during their North American tour. We met the band in Chicago and spent a beautiful day together.
We are close to finishing our new Songs Around the World album (currently untitled) and I really want to share the experiences with all of you as this is your global family!! Today I learned, “One day you are suffering in this world and the next day you are healing other people’s pain through music.” I first heard about this band when I saw a movie about their lives titled “Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars.” This group of musicians represent one of the great human triumphs of our time. They struggled through death, famine and genocide and yet moved forward with love in their hearts and melodies in their minds. They are not only searching for a better world, but are also creating one!!!
Thanks to the Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars, this is our ever growing PFC family and together we will connect the world through music.
One Love, Mark
