Playing for A Change - Songs Around the World
I stumbled across this on YouTube at lunch and I figured I would share. They have a ton of content on their YT page. Just a few I enjoyed.

The Weight

All Along The Watch Tower Featuring Amanda Shaw, plus Ivan and Cyril Neville from NOLA.

Gimme Shelter

Higher Ground

Listen To The Music

Dock of They Bay - Ft. Jack Johnson

La Bamba

From their YT page: "Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World."

I saw a touring version of this group at Tipitina's several years ago. From Wiki, "Mark Johnson was walking in Santa Monica, California, when he heard the voice of Roger Ridley (deceased in 2005)singing "Stand By Me"; it was this experience that sent Playing For Change on its mission to connect the world through music."

Their music foundation has created 15 music education programs in 11 countries.

Here's the first song/video they released.

Stand By Me

I stumbled upon their stuff this weekend on YouTube and was gobsmacked. Just insanely well done.

They are pretty much all good but the Ripple and Cotton Fields ones are absolutely incredible.

This is the one that first nabbed me (a couple years ago). Had seen a couple others but for some reason never delved deeper till now... Thanks!
