We have a little tradition in the Jones house most night before bath time, that I truly love. We load up YouTube on the TV and watch half an hour or so of videos created by Playing for Change, an organization focused on connecting the world through music. The videos are amazingly well produced, linking artists from around the world in a single song. The quality shines through, but so does the passion and joy of every musician involved. The series isn’t made for children, but it exposes them to so many different people, songs, cultures and instruments, that it is a great vehicle to broaden their world.
There are so many videos that I could recommend, but here’s the first one we watched, which got us hooked:
Humans are capable of so many fine acts and I am so happy to have found this one. If you like the video as much as I do, check out their YouTube page. If you’re like me, you’ll watch video after video after video.
I’ll get you started with a couple of others that we love.
