http://playingforchange.com/episodes/44 – We started this track in West Africa with a musical group named Tinariwen. We asked them to play a groove in the key of G, then as we traveled the world we added more musicians to the song. Over the course of our travels it transformed into a global jam with its roots in the blues.
http://www.playingforchange.com/episodes/37/Imidiwan_Afrik_Tendam – In the Summer of 2009 the Playing For Change Band headlined the World Stage at Glastonbury Festival. For that performance, the PFC Band was larger and more diverse than ever before, welcoming back Francois Viguie, Roberto Luti, and Stefano Tomaselli as well as special guests Tinariwen, the Omagh Community Youth Choir, Vusi Mahlasela, and more. The show served as a tangible reminder of what is possible when cultures come together through art and inspiration.
For the band, the crew, and the audience it was an unbelievably moving experience, and now we are thrilled to be able to share a bit of it with the world! This song is available as a bonus feature on the CD / DVD release Playing For Change Live, or as an individual digital download, available in our webstore at http://store.playingforchange.com
