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. Introducing the giants to the likes of Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven, he has been an immense source of comfort and relief for the animals.

Barton improvised a short “Piano for Elephants” arrangement Spy, Kanta, Namwan, and Kat to play during their favorite afternoon snack of yams. Recorded in the mountains of Kanchanaburi, Thailand on a FEURICH 122 upright piano.
