Inspiration and Peace Through Music

“Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes.” ~Bob Marley

Peace Through Music, Playing for Change. A coming together through music created by Mark Johnson and developed by Mark and Jonathan Wells over the last four years with incredible talents from all over the world.

During the month of August the new DVD movie of Playing for Change is featured on the PBS channels. Check your listings for it. And visit the website Playing for Change.

This was recorded live at the Starbucks Leadership Conference in New Orleans featuring Grandpa Elliot of New Orleans and Clarence Bakker of Amsterdam, Netherlands and currently Spain, singing the late Sam Cooke’s incredible song, A Change is Gonna Come.

Some time ago I blogged about their song One Love. And on my other blog I posted today their song, Stand by Me.

Beautiful music in every sense of the word. I've always loved S Cooke's "Change is Gonna Come" (also Otis Redding's version), but this is a fantastic rendition. "War" was really well done, too. I'll have to find out about that bowed Indian instrument.

Absolutely wonderful. Both those songs will stay with me for the rest of the day. I had to listen to "War" a couple times because I enjoyed it so much. Thank you
