In honor of blues legend Robert Johnson's birthday, we are proud to share our latest Song Around The World, "Walking Blues," featuring Keb' Mo' along with musicians from six countries. Originally written and recorded by Son House in 1930, Robert recorded his own version in 1936. We started our version in Patagonia, Argentina with Roberto Luti and Nico Bereciartua playing slide guitars in front of a 100-year-old​ fig tree and with that raw performance, we added friends as we traveled to create a blues jam around the world.  Blues is always from the people for the people and this video creates a moment in time to come together and put all the darkness and division we face as a human race into the music so it can set us free.  Turn it up and enjoy!

There's no way to measure the magnitude of impact Playing For Change has made on humanity, it's so damn big we can't even imagine the size and the ripple effects for decades to come. Thank You for such awesome productions, so many songs, it's refreshing, I feel like I have been given the chance to relive the 70s and 80s again. Wow!
