Gimme Shelter


I didn't know much about Playing for Change or the Livornese guitarist Roberto Luti until our friend Luis Gomez sent me a link to this video. Behind Luti you can easily recognize the red brick walls of the “Fortezza Nuova”.

Thanks VP. I really needed that.
As the Irish proverb quoted at the video's beginning says, "It is in the shelter of each other that the people live."

Now that is absolutely brilliant. Everything about it, including those beautiful voices. And thanks to signor Luti for representing Europe.

Great concept...watched and heard this at Michelle/Farmchick's blog! Change through music...I LIKE it! Music is a universal language!

Is it OK if I share this on my blog?
