The first Playing for Change was something of a global sensation, combining world music superstars and a host of unknowns from around the world. This release follows that format and is a worthy successor. Great stuff all around. Every track has some element of surprise, just when you think it’s going to sound a certain way, it throws you a curve. Read the notes for info on this amazingly star-filled CD.|
