After forty years of career as a piano tuner, ones can retire with ease. Or face a lifetime challenge – to transport a 100-year-old, 80 kilograms Broadwood & Sons grand piano to primary school in Zanskar in the heart of the Indian Himalayas. It is the highest place in the world where the piano was brought. In transport Sherpas help is irreplaceable, it all happening on yaks and ponies. Overcoming mountain passes and narrow lanes is a beautiful experience, but physically and mentally exhausting. More importantly, it will be the ultimate gesture of music’s universal power: to inspire strength and bring joy.
