Playing For Change is an organization that holds a very strong belief: the world can be connected using music. The group connects musicians from every corner of the world and inspires them to make music together. In 2002, the founders of Playing For Change hit the streets of America and made a documentary about the importance of street musicians. Since then, the organization has changed its primary function into charity. Donations and album sales from Playing For Change goes into art and music programs for schools for children around the world.

The video below features several musicians from across the world performing the same song - "Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay." The separate recordings are combined to create a beautiful compilation of musicians from around the world.
