Traveling Pianist Unofficially Opens Elton John Concert in New Orleans

What this guy is doing is pretty ingenuous. Davide Martello is traveling the world hauling is grand piano around towed only under pedal power.

Traveling Pianist Unofficially Opens Elton John Concert in New Orleans

I recently saw him on the streets of New Orleans being towed while he was playing, his keyboard is lit up with hidden speakers to project the sound. His music seems improvisational and new-agey, which is not really new-agey any more since it’s so familiar and played by so many piano players now.

You gotta admire the guy for having such a great idea and going ahead and executing it. His goal is to play in every major city and capital throughout the world.

The German musician is a hero of sorts. Last year Davide hauled his piano to Taksim Square in Istanbul during the riots and political unrest there and quelled the tensions, if only temporarily. Shows you the profound affect beautiful music can have on the human soul.

We are fortunate to have him grace New Orleans, the musical capital of America, with his beautiful playing.
