I stumbled upon this video on YouTube and LOVED IT. It shows CI users learning how to listen to/play music at the Senzoku Gakuen College of Music in Japan. Music sounds very different to a CI user than it does to a typical hearing person.
Did you know that the marimba is the national instrument of Guatemala?
We heard lots of beautiful marimba music when we toured Antigua, Guatemala. There is no other sound like it! Some of you may remember we had it playing at AJ's Welcome Home Fiesta as well.
The beginning of the video shows a girl playing the marimba solo. Toward the middle, two girls play a due on the marimba. Awesome!! (Other instruments are played in the video as well)
Enjoy...Don't forget to stop the music above before playing the video below.
