Playing For Change: Songs Around The World â€“ Deluxe Edition, featuring the award-winning, previously unavailable full-length documentary film Peace Through Music was released by Playing For Change Records/Concord Music Group on October 13th.
This special two-disc package includes a 10 track â€œSongs Around the Worldâ€ audio CD plus DVD containing the 84 minute documentary as well as 2 bonus chapters: â€œThe Filmmakersâ€™ Journeyâ€ (a 15-minute behind the scenes featurette consisting of interviews with project executive producer Norman Lear, directors Mark Johnson and Jonathan Walls along with several other key members of the Playing For Change initiative) and â€œThe Playing For Change Foundation,â€ focusing on the enlightening and inspiring work of the projectâ€™s remarkable non-profit organization.
With its stirring call for reconciliation and cross-cultural unification, the global music collaboration/multi-media project, Playing For Change has struck a deep and powerful chord world-wide. â€œPlaying For Change is an exploration into the human spirit,â€ stated founder and film co-director/producer Mark Johnson. â€œIt demonstrates the power of music to unite us as a human race.â€ â€œThe project brings an insight into humanity,â€œ adds co-director Jonathan Walls. â€œItâ€™s my wish that audiences around the world absorb this musical essence and become inspired to participate and celebrate its manifestation.â€
