Listening to this just makes us happy… another great performance brought to us by the folks at Playing For Change.

“The PFC crew is here in Congo recording new songs around the world. On
our second day of filming we met this group of amazing musicians in
Kinshasa and within minutes they where playing us some songs and sharing
their stories. Today’s video is a song titled “Toyeba Yo.”

TP OK Jazz Band in Kinshasa keep the memory of the Immortal Congolese
Guitar player, Franco, alive and well. These musicians truly represent
the soul of Congo and they teach us that even in terrible circumstances
the artist and the musician must rise up to bring joy and hope to all
those who will listen.”

“In the summer of 2011 the Playing For Change Band was invited to perform at Jazz Fest in New Orleans. While we were in town long-time friend of the project, Jimmy Buffett, invited us to a jam session on the roof of Margaritaville that rocked into the wee hours of the morning.

This may be one of our new favorites from the Playing For Change folks… beautiful!

“7 Billion People | 7 Billion Actions | 7billionactions.org – By the end of 2011 the world will have reached 7 billion people. The United Nations Population Fund is leading an innovative global campaign to bring awareness to the opportunities and challenges that this milestone presents. But 7 Billion people means 7 Billion hearts. Music has always been the best way to speak to the hearts of the people. Playing for Change has partnered with the United Nations to present an original song around the world to serve as an anthem for such an important time, “United”.

We traveled across the globe, put headphones on musicians, added them to the track, and created a video that can serve as a tangible example of something positive we can all do together as a human race.

Lets inspire each other. Lets everybody get involved and join us on in this journey, so that together we leave this world better than we found it. To learn more about how to be part of the “United” track go to http://7BillionActions.org.”
