music of the streets

I don’t know the story behind this video, but it’s beautiful, creative and powerful, and it seems fitting to share on the eve of The Soloist opening in theaters.

  1. In my hurry to post the video I didn’t realize the background for the video/song were right there on the vimeo page. Here’s what it says,

    “From the award-winning documentary, “Playing For Change: Peace Through Music”, comes the first of many “songs around the world” being released independently. Featured is a cover of the Ben E. King classic by musicians around the world adding their part to the song as it traveled the globe. This video and “Don’t Worry” are available now at iTunes. Other songs such as “One Love” will be released as digital downloads soon; followed by the film soundtrack and DVD in stores on 4.28.09.”

  2. This is really cool! There are more songs/videos and information about the foundation that put this project together on playingforchange.com. Thanks for posting this!
