How a contortionist plays music

Posted by: Kate Torgovnick May

We are thoroughly impressed with contortionist Anudari, who performed last week at TEDxUlaanbaatar in Mongolia. She has been studying contortion since she was 6-years-old. But it’s not just her outrageous flexibility and ability to fold in impossible ways that makes her so fascinating to watch. It’s the fact that she can play a musical instrument while balancing on a stick held in her mouth, as her legs and back press over the rest of her body. Bravo Anudari!

    Speechless! Cultivated, talented, ‘genetic’, magic, out of this world where you don’t know and can’t yet imagine. Today’s tranquilized Mongolia which gave a birth to the Genghis Khan in the past, got herself a house speaker and give her voice to the world.

    While the performance was fascinating, the editing was beyond atrocious!
    One entire portion was impossible to see as it was done in a bizarre long shot for no apparent reason other than to show off that there were live musicians there.
    Plus, the shadow screen was annoying & completely unnecessary. It added nothing to it!
