Playing For Change – The Making of Songs Around The World (MM)



The main reason behind all this is the question of how we can connect the entire planet.

In a world with so much division, music is a way to bring people together.

We began to think of the process of uniting all these musicians and this should go beyond documenting different people playing, and that in a world with so much division, music was something that could bring people together.

And they with a portable studio, they decided they wanted to make music around the world.

Then, starting at just a city.

In Santa Monica, California With music, Stand by me.

The team traveled the world and found 37 other musicians around the world, playing with headphones in which listened to the people who had preceded.

If we connect with people we can not write in separate locations and with different songs.

We have to keep them together.

They also decided to go “from darkness to light”, with the song War in Trouble.

the first part of the song says there are many conflicts in the world, the second states that do not need problems, all you need is love.

They were lucky to find musicians in several places, Congo and Zimbabwe to Bono, Ireland.

All these different cultures were united in an intrinsic characteristic connection.

No matter one group or the other, but all as a human race.

The project involves inspiration and entertainment, most likely features to motivate the planet to join.

Playing for Change is something for everyone.

We must remember that we are all connected.

In a world with so many borders, we need to focus on what holds us together.
