Southbank Buskers

It's quite normal to find recently qualified music students busking, these two were good. So I asked what the piece they were playing was. It was a klezmer violin piece. Which they played on flute and banjo. OK.

Thanks for the shot. The contrast with the two business dudes, one on a cel phone is a real comment on the contrast with the vintage music and values.

I love Klez music, soul music of the Yids.

Do you know if there is much Klez busking about London?

Stef in Chicago.

The guy with the phone is clearly too important to enjoy a little music of a lunchtime! Nice one.

I just love the way everyone shimmies round beggars, buskers, salesmen. I'd love to put a movie camera vertically above and speed up the playback.

I reckon those two chaps walking past are security men "yep, yep, I'm eyeballing, eyeballing, it's in the kid's guitar case, ok we're onto it. Go go go."
