Where There Is Love | Playing For Change in Dayton, Ohio USA



Published on June 25, 2013

To celebrate the diverse cultures and talents in the city of Dayton, Ohio, a wide array of musicians, singers and dancers came together to create "Where There Is Love," a music video based on the eclectic globe-hopping imagery and sounds that define Playing For Change. The entire video was shot on-location in Dayton.

This project supports the nationally recognized initiative called "Welcome Dayton: Immigrant-Friendly City," a plan that seeks to bridge communication barriers and cultural differences throughout the city. The varied performers and lyrical message of "Where There Is Love" are a powerful illustration of that plan as well as the goal of Playing For Change -- connecting the world through music.
