About the music presented on this site:
The Playing for Change tracks included here are exemplary of our ability, even when we do not speak the same language, to connect as friends and share some of the most meaningful moments of our lives.
I challenge all nations to reverse their budget line items. If we spent as much on the arts as we spend on the military, and spend as little on the military as we spend on the arts, we would more easily achieve a peaceful civilization that places a higher priority on peace than it does on war.
In many ways, music truly speaks louder than words.
