The re-release of Peter Gabriel’s ‘Biko’ forty years on, by Playing for Change.

Certain music just talks straight to the soul. And without knowing why you find yourself on the edge of tears. 
In this modern world, music like this has never been more welcome. Craig Challoner

Today is Peter’s birthday. And it’s my father’s birthday, too. He’s now not in this Earth, but we went together to the historical concert in 1988 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I remember it like it was today. 70000 thousand candles singing Biko. It was one of the greatest moments of my life. And I see this version now and it’s impossible not to cry. El resto depende de nosotros  oh oh ohh !!! LOVE. Andres Callero Ruiz
