Summer Vacation in the Philippines Part II: The Old Man and His Violin

During my stay at Liloan Southern Leyte, I met an extraordinary man. He is an old man in his 60’s. He is a musician and he plays the violin but unlike the other violinists he doesn’t own a Stravidarius nor a Stentor. His violin is homemade. It is made from a rod, strings, bottlecaps and a tin can. When someone asked him what he can do with his musical instrument, he just simply sat on the bench and played. First he played a couple of Filipino music and then I requested for a Delilah. I’m really impressed because he got the tune (almost) eventhough his instrument is not one of the best. It only shows that he got the skill and the passion.

Check out the video at the last part of this post.
