BREAKING DOWN
BOUNDARIES
Playing For Change was created to inspire and connect the world through music. The idea for this project came from a common belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.
Traveling around the world inspired us to unite many of the greatest musicians we met throughout our journey. These musicians come from many different countries and cultures, but through music they speak the same language

PLAYING FOR CHANGE
BAND
Creating Songs Around The World inspired us to unite many of the greatest musicians we met throughout our journey and form the Playing For Change Band.

These musicians come from many different countries and cultures, but through music they speak the same language. The band now tours the world, spreading the message of love and hope to audiences everywhere.

PLAYING FOR CHANGE
FOUNDATION
Inspired by the love and hospitality in some of the most underprivileged communities, we decided to create a separate non-profit organization in 2007, building the first music school in Gugulethu, South Africa.

Today, the Playing For Change Foundation, operates 17 music programs in 13 countries. PFC Foundation was honored to be named a ‘Polar Music Prize’ winner in 2019.
