(Playing for Change) “Colors” is a feel-good single from the Black Pumas, originally released on their self-titled debut album and nominated for two GRAMMYs.
Slash, The Pocket Queen, Tony Kanal and more than 20 musicians and dancers from 10 countries accompany the Black Pumas in this Song Around The World version, featured at Peace Through Music: A Global Event for the Environment.
“Colors” takes listeners on an emotional self-reflective journey that explores the beauty, diversity and unity in the world. “It was inspired by the rich multicolored hues of the sky and was written in the themes of mortality and togetherness.” -Adrian Quesada
Join our sisters and brothers around the world and see the beauty in all colors! One Love!

Inspire and connect the world through music
Playing For Change (PFC) is a Certified B Corp (Social Purpose Organization) 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 supporting music programs for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet. To learn more, visit https://playingforchange.com
