Pianist Travels 400 Miles To Make A Beautiful Gesture In Paris

After all the heartbreak, loss and devastation that happened in Paris last weekend, the lack of humanity and destruction caused fear and deep upset. In times like this where humanity seems lost, it comes down to the people to become a team, a family and a support system; and that is exactly what this magical pianist did.

Davide Martello cycled his piano, to outside the Bataclan nightclub where so many innocent people had lost their lives and made a statement, to all those that had been affected and to those there to support, and this was a statement of love.

“I just knew I had to do something,” street pianist Davide Martello told to the Guardian. “I wanted to be there to try and comfort, and offer a sign of hope.”

Davide was originally in Germany when the news broke concerning the terror attack in Paris, especially the Bataclan nightclub and it was at that moment he knew what he had to do. It was soon after, he began his 400-mile journey to the streets of Paris to give the tearful performance. He chose to perform John Lennon’s 1971 famous song ‘Imagine’ to pay respect to all those that cruelly had their lives taken and to the families and loved ones that are suffering losses.

He made a public statement in saying, “I can’t bring people back but I can inspire them with music and when people are inspired they can do anything,” Martello says. “That’s why I played ‘Imagine.’” He later went on to explain why he chose to do what he did, showing dedication and selflessness, “It doesn’t feel right for me to chill and talking to my friends here in Germany about my (past) experience in Paris yesterday. Some people in Paris are still afraid to go out. I wish all the street performers around Paris would stand together to perform for peace. My contribute will be a tour throughout all the places where the killing was… I’m still tired from the drive of last night but I will come tomorrow. Paris is the city of love! FOREVER!”

This is not the first time Martello has performed in these kind of circumstances as he often travels to places of desperation and tragedy in a plea to bring hope to others. He performs under the name Klavierkunst and was seen at the time of the Charlie Hebdo disaster, which took place at the beginning of this year.

This man is a true inspiration to all of us.
