The Universality of Music: Elephant Moved by Piano Being Played 🎥

Elephants, among the largest animals on the planet, are tremendously expressive creatures. Joy, anger, grief, compassion, love; these emotions and more have been captured on display by wildlife photographers. Through years of research, scientists have found that elephants are capable of complex thought and deep feelings, while developing complex social bonds.

When a moment as delicate as joy is witnessed — and emoted — it is truly worth taking the time to cherish it. In the scene below, we see Lam Duan (meaning “Tree with Yellow Flowers”), an elephant that has been blind most of her life, taking in the piano chords of Bach played for her (Elephant World, Thailand.)

Watch for yourself how the music of “Bach” played on a piano in the fields moves this beautiful creature...a truly heartwarming experience.
