Extreme Talent

Benjamin David, Accordion Artist Extraordinaire : Altstadt Genf : Geneva, CH

I finally have a new addition to my 100 Strangers series. While Kara and I were wandering over to Saint Peter's Cathedral and Square in Old Town, we could hear this beautiful music that we thought was organ music coming from the church. Imagine our surprise to find this young man, Benjamin David, playing an accordion! His musical skill and talent were amazing and you could see the connection between Benjamin, his music, and his instrument in his face and the way he played. It was sublime! If you're ever in the Alstadt and you stumble across this guy, throw a five franc piece his way. Worth every centime and more!

Benjamin was very obviously a part of the music and instrument he was playing.
