Story telling: Musicians in Manuel Montt Metro

Story telling: Musicians in Manuel Montt Metro

There are so many interesting folk who I walk past everyday in Santiago. A great example is a couple of classical musicians (who happen to be twin brothers), who play outside of a metro (subway station). They play so beautifully, but their music seems so out of place there.

I walked past them the other day when I had my camera with me and decided to make it into a quick video, because their reason for playing there is so sweet.

    Amanda This is stunning! Made me teary eyed 🙂
    I think they SHOULD write a book documenting the stories and questions. It’s a beautiful thing they are doing in a world where so many of us don’t take the time to listen. WOW

    Tina! Wow! Really!!? Thanks so much for the comment!
    There are so many people working here in the street, it would be so interesting to have a big story about all of them too! It is such a beautiful thing! 🙂 Does your camera do videos too? Lots of love! 🙂

    Yeah it does 🙂 But I’m sad to say I haven’t picked it up since we moved!
    Music and other art is one thing that can really be loved by all people. I don’t think it should be limited to the well taught, wealthy or “upper classes” some of the most moving things I’ve heard and seen are from people who have had to fight for food, clothing, shelter and in some cases for the right to live. To me, it seems to mean more 🙂 and for those who are willing to play, perform and create for others (such as the Metro musicians) I send much love and respect. It’s such a selfless gift to give to the world.
    Thinking of you 🙂

    Tina Sloan You’re so right. That’s the great thing about art – creativity doesn’t discriminate. Luckily these guys actually make some pretty good money from a days work at the metro – I guess people who appreciate music as much as you do reward them for their effort. I’m looking forward to seeing the creative things you come up with in your new location Tina! 🙂 ox
