“stand by me” virtual street collaboration

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Basically, this guy traveled around to a bunch of street artists around the world and recorded a cover of “Stand By Me”.  They started with Roger Ridley in California and then went to Louisiana to visit Grandpa Elliott.  After assembling this sample, they took it all over Europe, South America and Africa to record instrumentals and the result is the video above.

Grandpa Elliott or that guy from Amsterdam were my favorites.   Such a remarkable idea, and the song was quite fitting as well.
