This is very cool.

"I took my piano to the mountains of Kanchanaburi to play for some very old, injured and handicapped elephants, especially a blind elephant Plara immediately behind the piano. 
Plara, the elephant just behind the piano, worked all his life in the logging trade until he was rescued and donated to Elephant's World. Plara was blinded by sharp branches when he carried logs in the deep jungle. He is 41 years old and has a gentle temperament with humans despite all he has been through. Because he is blind, each time I visit him I play a few notes on the flute to say hello."

Be well and do good,
