Classical piano soothes old elephants at Thai sanctuary | Reuters
Un peu de douceur dans ce monde de brutes…
Un pianiste anglais, installé en Thailande, joue de la musique dans un sanctuaire pour vieux éléphants abimés par une vie de dur labeur au service des humains.
For eight years, pachyderms like Lam Duan - old, overworked and sometimes disabled - have been rehabilitated with music at Elephants World, a retirement sanctuary for the animals in the western Thai province of Kanchanaburi.

Beethoven “Moonlight Sonata” for Old Elephant
Mongkol is a 61-year-old former logging elephant. His captive-held life was spent hauling trees in the Thai forest.

Mongkol was rescued and brought to Elephants World to spend the rest of his days relaxing peacefully in freedom by the River Kwai. I discovered Mongkol is an extremely gentle, sensitive elephant who enjoys music, especially this slow movement by Beethoven which I play to him occasionally in the day and night.

Chaichana is a powerful male elephant that lives at Elephants World in Thailand. I’ve become very close to this elephant over the past few years and seen a gentle, sensitive side to his character.
