The Latest Song: Chanda Mama
This Song Around The World is a folk tune from Chennai, India. We started the track in New Orleans and added musicians from the across the globe before finally delivering it the people of it’s origin. We ended up in Chennai recording and filming the vocals from the Oneness Choir. The track has a feeling of perseverance and joy and features vocalists from four continents.

After 4 years of filming and recording musicians around the globe, we are finally releasing our album "Playing For Change: Songs Around The World" featuring a 10 song CD and 7 track DVD.

Today is our chance to show the world that independent projects designed to connect and inspire people can be successful. If you have been moved by the music you've heard or the videos you have seen from Playing For Change then I encourage you to purchase the CD/DVD for yourself and/or give it to a family member or friend as a gift. Our continuing journey is not possible without your support.
The album demonstrates that regardless of our religion, race, gender, or political views we can unite through music. The time is now to unite as a human race and this global collaboration driven by your love and encouragement is designed to lead us in that direction.
After supporting the movement, take your own online journey and get to know the musicians through our new site (which will be updated regularly with new videos, songs, photos and much more ... ).
Thank you for your help and keep your thoughts, questions and advice coming. Together, we will continue to connect the world through music.
