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!
