Zeitgeist Moment Synopsis: Fluid social change can only materialize if two circumstances
are met. One, the human value system, which consists of our understandings and beliefs,
must be updated and changed through education and thoughtful introspection. Two, the
environment surrounding that value system must change to support the new world view. The

Playing for Change A multimedia movement created to inspire, connect, and bring peace
to the world through music. The idea for this project arose from a common belief that music
has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. No
matter whether people come from different geographic, political, economic, spiritual or
ideological backgrounds, music has the universal power to transcend and unite us as one
human race. And with this truth firmly fixed in our minds, we set out to share it with the world.

In The Language of Emotions, I use my empathic skills on the emotions themselves, and
treat them as a complete and interdependent system without which we cannot be whole. In
the field of the sociology of emotions, researchers attempt to connect emotions across
cultures to create a grand unified theory of emotion. In this book, I jump into the middle of
the emotional realm itself and connect the emotions within and throughout the psyche. The
emotions are a fascinatingly interconnected and unified system, and I’m so glad to be able to
share this information with you!

Well aware that countless others face far worse problems than he did, Franti wants The
Sound Of Sunshine to communicate a sense of hope and possibility for anybody who needs
it. Franti’s singularly open spirit reflects his own eclectic and intriguing background. Michael
was born to an Irish-German-French mother and an African American and American Indian
father in Oakland, then adopted by a Finnish American couple who raised him along with
their three biological children and another African American son. While studying at the
University of San Francisco, Franti formed the punk band The Beatnigs, and later the far
more hip hop-inflected The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy. Through it all, Franti has
crossed all sorts of musical and physical boundaries in order to make music for everybody.
