Wirag and His Xylophone - Thailand

Wirag and His Xylophone - Thailand. I Love Music! 7’

Gadh Charbit

Ten year old Wirag lives in the capital of Thailand and once a week he takes private classes from a university professor. He learns to play ancient tunes, by ear, on his xylophone. Music is only transmitted orally and frequent practicing is what makes one a true master. Wirag plays at a local festival with his classmates and wins the award for the most attractive group. The place where he likes to practices the most is a Buddhist temple. One of the days, he has wonderful surprise as one of the monks invites him to play a magnificent xylophone.
