Playing Piano For Injured Elephants Pianist Paul Barton has a real passion for elephants. He took a piano up to the mountains of Kanchanaburi in Thailand. (I'm not sure how in the world he got the piano up there!) Paul and his piano traveled long and far to play for some very old and injured elephants that live at an elephant reserve called "Elephant World." Paul specifically wanted to play for a blind elephant named Piara. Piara is standing directly behind the piano. Piara seemed to enjoy Beethoven!
