After spending a couple of days in Barcelona we met Markos, a local street musician. He agreed to be followed by our camera and even offered us to stay at his place for a few days. We found out that this didgeridoo player was nothing like the image we had of buskers.
39-year old Markos started performing in Park Guell two years ago. Maybe hard to imagine, but Señor Markusen is actually an architect.
During his studies, he traveled to Australia to meet his favourite architect. He firstly spend some time working, but then started travelling around the country. Along the way he learned the art of playing didgeridoo and felt a big interest in the aboriginal culture. He kept travelling to Australia for many years, meeting aboriginal people and other didgeridoo players.
His passion postponed his studies, but nevertheless four years ago he graduated as an architect. As he describes himself: „I always had one leg in architecture and one in music“.
Now five days a week he plays as a one man orchestra. He has been playing music since his young days, but after playing in several bands, it was time for him to start his own show. Little by little he created the setup he uses now.
Markos wants to bring his performance to bigger stages. In our video you can see how his organic dance music makes people dance on the prettiest hill of Barcelona.
