Finally, the elephants get to tickle the ivories

July 24, 2013 § Leave a comment

One of the horrors of piano history was the killing of elephants so their tusks could be used as the ivory covering the white keys. As far as I know, they never got to play the dang things until now. This video shows an elephant in Thailand jamming on the modern plastics with a human blues player. The elephant deserves a more sensitive accompanist, but is enjoying himself nevertheless.

I would like to play the piano with an elephant, so if anyone knows an elephant who would like to jam, give me a call.
