The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many countries to carry out travel restrictions, lockdown areas, and close public places, including tourist destinations such as zoos.
Like in the Zoo Cologne, Germany. Since the COVID-19 pandemic took place, the zoo here has been closed. There is practically no income for the zoo.
This condition brought ideas for the young pianist from Germany, Thelonious Hermann. Carrying his piano, he played the musical compositions he made for the zoo animals.
And, Thelonious also received a warm welcome in every cage of the animals who were entertained by playing the piano. Starting from elephants, giraffes, goats, monkeys to sea lions.
The penguins, who heard the piano, immediately lined up, as if listening to Thelonious’ play. Meanwhile, the sea lions seemed to be dancing happily in the water, when Herman played the piano near them.
Selected from the DW Travel Facebook page, Thelonious did this to collect donations for the Cologne Zoo. Under the ‘Stadtgeklimper’ project, Thelonius toured 18 countries in Europe.
