In Thailand, an 11-year-old pianist wears a bright green costume to play music for an extraordinary crowd. As a result, the lemurs, meerkats, and zebras in Khao Kheow Open Zoo, seemingly enjoyed the performance.

In an interview with The Reuters, Seenlada Supat is one of the volunteer students who play famous songs in the country. She disguised as an alligator to blend with the surroundings and the animals residing in the menagerie.

“I’m playing music to soothe the animals, to help them feel relaxed and accompany them so that they are not too lonely” – says Seenlada.

According to the zoo director, Tawin Rattanawongsawa, the animals have a positive reaction to different melodies and soothing sound that has been playing since volunteers began to visit the place.

Lemurs are classified under primates, the same order that includes monkeys, apes, and humans. These mammals are known as wild animals. They are indigenous inhabitants of Madagascar island.

The child draws inspiration to play piano from nature and animals. Furthermore, she did it to overcome her stage fright. As youngsters, we all have traumas or fear of rejection. It is a valiant act to be able to overcome such fears. At the same time, convert it into a humanitarian or charitable deed.
