Man Plays Piano For Blind Elephant And It’s An Incredible Music Therapy
Music is good for the soul and not just for humans, but for animals too. British pianist Paul Barton decided that he would share his gift with a 62-year-old female elephant Lam Duan who is blind. Barton wanted to see if his classical music would soothe her and be a form of music therapy – and boy it was!
Barton visited the beloved gentle giant in the middle of the jungle in Thailand where he set up his piano. You know, a “normal” place for a concert! It turns out that Lam Duan hasn’t always been so gentle and calm. “I was heartbroken when I first saw Lam Duan arrive at Elephants World in 2012,” he recalled. She’s so restless. When you play music to her, she stops being restless and is calm.”
It’s apparent that the adorable blind elephant who has endured a lot feels a sense of peace as she listens to Barton’s stunning melodies. Watch this precious blind elephant react to a concert in her honor. This is truly music therapy at its best!
