Davide Martello: Música para la paz en Taksim Square (Istambul)

Preparando maletas para Istanbul...

The thousands of demonstrators that gathered once again late on June 12 in Gezi Park had an opportunity to chill out thanks to the piano concert of the German musician Davide Martello

 The Italian-born pianist and composer, who visited the Taksim Square and the park, made a surprise to its “occupiers” bringing with him nothing less than his big piano and gave a mellow concert for the crowd. 

 Martello, who is an accustomed of such spontaneous performances, played sonatas among other classic tunes. (Ver)


 'Good night Istanbul' 

 Martello, who built his piano himself and outfitted it with lighting and heating to allow him to play in the dark and the cold, dragged it down in a trailer from his hometown of Konstanz, Germany. On his way, he stopped in Bulgaria and Kosovo to give outdoor concerts there. 

 Aside from "Lightsoldiers," he also tapped out a rendition of Paul McCartney's "Let it be." 

 "And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me. Shine until tomorrow, let it be," he sang. 

 He left a message on Facebook for the protesters. 

 "Good night Istanbul, tomorrow I will playing again on the square for freedom and our rights." 

 Tear gas permitting. (Más)

Soon afterward, a video of the performance went viral on Facebook.
