In honor of the 50th anniversary of The Grateful Dead, a group of artists from across the world collaborated on a remake of the band’s 1970s classic, “Ripple.”

Artists from Italy, the US, Congo, Ghana, Argentina and Israel came together alongside Bill Kruetzmann, the original drummer for The Grateful Dead, to support the work of the Playing for Change Foundation, a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music. The organization creates and maintains music schools and programs for children worldwide.

A singer named Tula from Tel Aviv contributed her vocals, and Elyasaf Bashari, also from Tel Aviv, added a little Middle Eastern flavor on strings. The goal of the project is simple: create a #RippleEffect and “leave the world better than we found it, one heart and one song at a time.”
