They're street musicians who'd already been playing for change in different cities across the globe. Then a Grammy-winning producer gathered and recorded each of them and crafted a layered piece of music that became a YouTube hit. And the multinational band "Playing for Change" was born.

Producer Mark Johnson and the band share their story and their music with guest host Allison Keyes in this "performance chat."
