PLAYING FOR CHANGE 

Song Around The World

I started following Playing for Change a few years ago.

I think the work they do and the way they present music from around the world is amazing.

Music is the universal language.

Here’s a new song that I found traversing through the internet today.

I hope you enjoy it!

~RASTA CHILDREN~

One evening, a few years ago in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil, the PFC crew and I were waiting for an 80-year-old cuica player to perform on a Song Around The World.

I remember it seemed to take forever for him to make it down the hill, as he would stop off in every bar along the way for a drink and some conversation. As we waited I looked and saw a Rastaman walking across the street with his acoustic guitar in hand.

I waved to him and he came over to see what we were doing with all our equipment. I told him about Playing For Change and he agreed to play a song for us while we were waiting. The result was an incredible, spontaneous performance of Dennis Brown’s “Rasta Children.”

His voice reminded me of Peter Tosh and he sang with so much soul that we realized this could be an amazing Song Around The World. Just one man and his guitar playing on the street set the tone for this song and we added a worldwide band of roots musicians around him.

“I and I deal with humanity …”

Song Around The World

Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.

The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World.

Creating these videos motivated PFC to form the Playing For Change Band – a tangible, traveling representation of its mission, featuring musicians met along their journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation – a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet.

~Ahoulaguine Akaline featuring Bombino~

Song Around The World

“Before, our music had the reputation of rebellion, but now it’s the opposite.”

Bombino

The title of this song translates to “I greet my country” and it was written by the great guitar player, Bombino, about his home in Niger after he spent years in exile.

Extremists and the leaders of the country tried to ban the guitar as a symbol of the rebellion.

Bombino once said,

“I do not see my guitar as a gun but rather as a hammer with which to help build the house of the Tuareg people.”

The unity of musicians around the world playing on this song is a statement that music is part of the foundation from which we rebuild our humanity and our world together.

America’s Got Talent 2018 …. “💕🎼 We Three Band: Audition and Judges Cut 🎼💕 …. “!!

~~August 1, 2018~~ 

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT 2018

~We Three~

THE POWER OF MUSIC

Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent has begun

I finally am caught up with the recorded episodes.

Music is powerful. It heals, it inspires, it speaks.

In season 13, NBC’s America’s Got Talent follows Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howie Mandel, and host Tyra Banks in their talent search, showcasing unique performers from across the country.

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

We Three will be hitting the stage again in the third round of judge cuts on ‘AGT.’ This sibling band stole our hearts when they first performed.

Here’s what you need to know about them!

Avery Thompson

The judge cuts continue on America’s Got Talent season 13

1. Mel B and Tyra Banks cried during We Three’s first audition. The siblings – Josh, Bethany, and Manny – performed their original song “Heaven’s Not Too Far Away.” The song was written in the perspective of their mother, who passed away from cancer two years ago. The performance moved Mel B to tears because she also lost her father to cancer.

2. Their mother tragically died from cancer, and they honor her through music. Josh, Bethany, and Manny’s mom was diagnosed with cancer in Sept. 2015 and died four months later, according to KGW8. Writing “Heaven’s Not Too Far Away” was therapeutic for the siblings.

“I think it was so impactful because it was like we got to have another conversation with her.

Every time we listen to it, we get to have another conversation with her,” Manny told the outlet.

W3-1

3. We Three has released a number of songs already. On the band’s official website, We Three has a number of songs available for fans to listen to, including “Lifeline” and a 4-song EP.

4. They want to “spread light and love” with their music. Fame has nothing to do with why these siblings want to make music. “It’s our way to connect with people, spread light and love and spread the vision of hope for a better tomorrow,” they told Portland Notes. 

“We hope to encourage and support people right where they’re at in their lives through our music.”

5. All three band members know how to play instruments and sing. They all took private lessons on the piano and later explored other instruments, they also revealed to Portland Notes. Josh plays piano and drums, while Bethany plays bass. Manny plays the guitar. “We learned to sing and play simultaneously,” they told the outlet.

Playing for Change …. 💕🎼 ‘The Moon’ …. Taimane 🎼💕 Live Outside …. “!!


~~June 23, 2018~~ 

The Moon … Taimane

Just what I need at this moment in time.

Soothing, calming, inspiring music.

I just discovered Taimane.

Enjoy this performance.

Filmed at the beautiful Kualoa Ranch in Oah’u, Hawai’i, this Live Outside video features Taimane performing her original composition, “The Moon,” alongside Windy Weather (violin) and Jasmine ‘Jazzy’ Skurtu (guitar).

“Being born and raised in Hawai’i, it’s hard not to be inspired by the nature around me,” shares Taimane.

“This song came to me one night when I was laying in my backyard with my dog, looking up at the moon wondering what she must be feeling. I did my best to personify her essence, who she is, and this song arose.”

Let this enchanting song carry you to the moon and beyond with a heart full of peace.

Tainm

 Taimane translates to diamond from Samoan and perfectly reflects the different facets of her nature Ukulele Dance CD music

Whether delicately finger-picking through Bach or radically ripping through Led Zeppelin, Taimane has the ability to morph genres – from classical to rock to flamenco – and stretch her instrument far beyond the familiar melodies of Hawai`i, where she grew up. In addition to performing her own distinctive versions of well-known pieces, Taimane weaves in original compositions that are as far ranging as her musical tastes Ukulele Dance buy CD music.

Her breakout CD, Ukulele Dance features Bach’s ‘Tocatta‘, Lalo Schifrin’s ‘Mission Impossible Theme‘, and pieces she wrote for the planet Neptune and the Moon, as part of her series on the solar system. With the fierceness of a rocker, the grace of a dancer, and the pageantry of a performance artist, Taimane and her music are wowing ever-larger audiences. She lights up rooms wherever she goes, sparkling like the diamond that she is.

‘A DAY IN THE LIFE’

M’lord! This so very talented young man from Canada, Jamie Dupuis, is taking me on a trip through memory lane!

This is another one of my very favorite songs from The Beatles. 

Incredible cover, amazing instrument!

Just lay back, close your eyes and be transported to another time … a time of love and sweetness.

A Day in the Life” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles that was released as the final track of their 1967 album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Credited to Lennon–McCartney, the verses were written mainly by John Lennon, with Paul McCartney primarily contributing the song’s middle section. Lennon’s lyrics were inspired by contemporary newspaper articles, including a report on the death of Guinness heir Tara Browne.

The Sound of Silence …. “🎼🎼 18 String Harp Guitar Cover 🎼🎼 …. “!!

~~May 1, 2018~~ 

THE SOUND OF SILENCE

BEYOND AMAZING!

Made a new discovery today!

Jamie Dupuis

This is one of my favorite songs ever!

I grew up to this music.

Simon and Garfunkel’s music made it to Puerto Rico. 

I remember the many nights in my bedroom, as a teen, listening to this song.

Incredible cover, amazing instrument!

Just lay back, close your eyes and be transported to another time … a time of love and sweetness. 

Enjoy …

A man named Jamie Dupuis‘ rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” is both captivating and haunting. Jamie, a guitarist and composer from Canada, plays the song on an 18-string harp guitar, and it’s getting a lot of attention for its mesmerizing melody.

Even without his voice, it’s easy to repeat the lyrics in your head

“Hello darkness, my old friend,

I’ve come to talk with you again,

Because a vision softly creeping,

Left its seeds while I was sleeping,

And the vision that was planted in my brain

Still remains

Within the sound of silence”

SS2

A harped guitar is distinctive due to the addition of one or more plucked strings that float on top of the instrument. It creates a beautiful sound, especially when strummed softly like Jamie does in the video.

On top of that, his choice of song couldn’t be more fitting, especially as he sits in the midst of a peaceful forest.

SSG2

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel recorded “The Sound of Silence” in 1964 and it hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

Paul wrote the song when he was just 21-years-old.
