In the Fall of 2009, Toots Hibbert (of Toots and the Maytals) joined the Playing For Change Band for an unforgettable show at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. He referred to the Playing For Change Band as “The Big Bad Band,” and they definitely lived up to the name!
We spend much of the year traveling; meeting musicians and learning the customs of communities all over the world. This night in Los Angeles however, it was a real joy for us in turn to welcome our friends and family from around the world to our home, and to celebrate our connection through music together.
And now it's such a joy to share that connection with you! If you love this song as much as we do, it's available for download. Thanks for supporting this global music movement!
