This video is rocking and inspiring my world. It started in California with a street musician named Roger Ridley. Then the producers–with just a laptop and a mike and some headphones–moved on to New Orleans, then Europe, Africa, South America, etc., asking musicians to listen to the basic track and play. Tears. Chills. In a good way.

An artist friend I sent it to wrote me this:

“i am speechless…
and inspired.
and feel more connected
to it all from watching that.”

That says it. Read the full backstory here. And see the organization’s (Playing for Change) five other videos like this (they’re all about bringing peace through music). But first, watch it by clicking below:
