Thank You For Another Great Year! | Best of 2018 Photo Album

This year was a great one for all of us at Playing For Change. We are thankful for all the people we met, and all the music we enjoyed! Above all, we are deeply thankful for all the love and support you keep giving us – together we are connecting the world through music!

This year we released our "Listen To The Music" album, featuring 12 Songs Around The World and many amazing musicians, and we are happy to share some photos with you!
