British classical pianist Paul Barton lives in Thailand where he uses his talent to soothe the gentle giants at the animal sanctuary, Elephant’s World. Since discovering the sanctuary that’s home to over 30 old, sick, and handicapped elephants, Barton has visited the reserve a number of times to perform for the ailing elephants.
