Child Prodigies

In my last post, I wrote I was in Seattle for 2 weeks. During my stay there I visited a street festival. I saw a band playing there for the visitors. The band had 2 singers, 3 guitar players, one base guitar player, one drummer, and one keyboard player. They were all youngsters.
 
Of the 3 guitar players, 2 of them were kids of Indian origin. Their ages are 12 and 9 both born in the USA. These 2 brothers call themselves The Skinnivasans (their last name is Srinivasan so it is a play on their last name). It is not an understatement if I say they are child prodigies. In fact, on that day they stole the show. Here are 2 samples of their performance.

In the near future, I expect these "Skinnivasan" brothers will become famous within the USA and at the international level. Then I will have to pay them to watch them play guitar.

  3. I saw the first video.. the elder brother played some brilliant guitar. The drummer was also superb. Did the kids compose this song? If so, then it's brilliant!!

  10. I see myself in that small girl
    Who plays guitar . I was exactly that short and my guitar was taller than me :) nice video . I loved these street plays . They are amazingly talented and I did the same when I went to Georgia and that was a lovely experience. I sung in English and they did in Spanish ! They said they don't know English ! Check out cubayo channel if it's available in the U S . It's full of songs and bands !
