(Playing For Change) We are excited to share a new video from our Live Outside series featuring Rocky Dawuni, Mermans Mosengo and Jason Tamba performing “Rivers of Babylon.” Originally written and recorded by the Jamaican reggae group.
Rivers of Babylon
The Melodians, this song was later made popular by the group, Boney M. Enjoy this version filmed live in the desert at Joshua Tree and know that despite of all the darkness, there IS light. Let your hope and faith be stronger than your fear…
Inspire and connect the world through music
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.
